Cheese-Stuffed Eggplant (Jordan)



  • 2 (1 pound) eggplants
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground marjoram

  3. Add remaining ingredients except reserved shells and cheese. Cover and cook over low heat 10 minutes.
  4. Place eggplant shells in ungreased shallow pan; spoon peanut mixture into shells.
  5. Sprinkle cheese over filled shells.
  6. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F until eggplant is tender, 30 to 40 minutes.

Yields 4 servings.
