Recipe for Mallorcan-style stuffed aubergines
1kg of aubergines
1 green pepper
one medium onion
1 large vase of tomato sauce.
250g mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
Cut the eggplants in half lengthwise. Put them in salted water for an hour and then dry them. Fry them in plenty of oil, first upside down and then on the skin side. Then empty the aubergines with a spoon.
Fry the finely chopped onion and pepper in a bread with very little oil. Then add the tomato sauce and chopped eggplant pulp, oregano, cheese in small cubes, salt and pepper. Move continuously with a wooden spoon, until the cheese has melted.
Stuff the aubergines. Place them on an oven dish. Sprinkle cheese on top, and put it in the oven to cook au gratin.
In the cover photo, the aubergines are accompanied by escalibada, but they still combine with French fries, depending on the taste of the guests.
It also shows the aubergines without cheese, but they are usually presented with a cover of grated cheese au gratin.
I mean, there are as many versions as there are cooks, and this is a good one.
