This past weekend I was barely productive. I did however, manage to cook a few things, which I will share with you, in case you are hungry.
1. Sausage and Sweet Potatoes: cube the sweet potatoes, cut sausage into 2 in pieces, put in a roasting pan and cook at 350 for about 50 minutes.
2. Roasted Garlic and Tomato Soup, which is here. We added cheese tortellini to it for a change.
3. Stuffed Eggplant: A bit involved, but worth it.(serves two)
1 large eggplant
1 lb ground beef
2 cloves garlic
Slice eggplant in 1/2 lengthwise, salt it and bake in the oven about 30 minutes or so (do this while the sausage and potatoes are cooking) until soft. Let cool. Dice onions and garlic, brown and then add ground beef.
When the eggplant is cool, take out the flesh, leaving some around the skin. Scrape off the seeds and then cut up the eggplant, Drain beef when cooked, return to pan, add eggplant and then tomato sauce, enough to make it moist and sort of hold together, but not soupy. Put this back into the eggplant skins, sprinkle with cheese and bake until heated through.
You will probably have more filling than can fit in the eggplant skins. I plan on serving it with brown rice at another meal.
It was good, I cooked for about an hour and a half and got 4 meals.
