  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped eggplant
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes

  • 2 red bell peppers, halved
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat crumbled feta cheese

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 ┬░F.
  2. Heat the oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, eggplant, garlic, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper for about 5 minutes or until eggplant starts to soften.
  3. Stir in the tomato paste, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook for about 5 minutes or until eggplant and tomatoes are tender.
  4. Remove from heat, and stir in the cooked quinoa and half of the parsley. Spoon the quinoa and vegetable mixture evenly into the red pepper halves.
  5. Arrange the bell peppers in a greased baking dish. Cover with foil. Bake for about 20 minutes or until peppers are tender-crisp.
  6. Remove foil. Crack an egg into each stuffed pepper, and sprinkle with feta.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until peppers are tender and whites are set or until desired doneness. Sprinkle with remaining parsley.
