This Greek Turkey and Feta Stuffed Eggplant is a delicious low carb meal that's packed with flavor.
I can't say enough about this Greek Turkey and Feta Stuffed Eggplant recipe. I am literally eating it for the fourth time this week since my husband refuses to eat eggplant. He won't even try it because he claims eggplant isn't his thing. Honestly I don't think he has even ever tried it - but that's a story for another day. Let's just say we are polar opposites when it comes to food. I will try almost anything once and he is pretty darn picky. Now let's get back to this eggplant. It's stuffed with a delicious combination of ground turkey, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, mushroom, black olives, and spinach all flavored with garlic, rosemary, dried basil, thyme, and oregano. Then everything is topped with feta cheese and baked until the eggplant is nice and tender. Yum.

- 2 U eggplants
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 U onion, diced
- 1.33 lbs. 93% lean ground turkey
- 2 U garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
- 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 4 cups spinach
- 14 oz. canned diced tomatoes, drained
- 1/2 cup roasted red peppers, chopped
- 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, chopped
- 1 cup reduced fat feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cut the eggplant the half and scoop out the inside using a spoon leaving about 1/4 inch border. Chop half the eggplant you scooped out and set aside. The rest can be saved or discarded.
Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook about 5 minutes until beginning to brown. Add the turkey, garlic, mushrooms, eggplant, and Italian seasoning. Cook until the turkey is browned and cooked through.
Add the spinach and tomatoes. Cook until spinach wilts, about 1 minute. Turn off the heat and stir in the roasted red peppers and olives.
Place the eggplant halves into a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Fill the eggplant with the turkey mixture and top with feta cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes until eggplant is fork tender.
