Vegan Quinoa Stuffed Aubergines Recipe

These Vegan Quinoa Stuffed Aubergines are really easy to make, even though they look and sound so sophisticated. They are inspired by traditional Mediterranean stuffed tomatoes or other vegetables, but the traditional stuffing of rice / breadcrumbs / meat / cheese is replaced by a tasty quinoa filling. Quinoa is a great alternative to rice, as it is highly nutritious : high in fibre, high in protein, and high in phytonutrients if you choose coloured quinoa. Plus, quinoa is not a grain, but a seed, so make sure to add some to your pantry if you are trying to eat a more varied diet and reduce the amount of grains that you eat. The pine nuts (a seed, not a nut) or pumpkin seeds give the filling a satisfying crunch, feel free to vary the seeds or use nuts if there is no risk of allergy. You could serve the stuffed aubergines with a drizzle of tahini over the top, and a side salad of fresh, pickled or fermented vegetables.
