Servings: 8 as a side dish; 4 as a main course
The name of this famous Turkish dish implies it was so good that “the imam fainted.” I hope you won’t keel over, but you’re sure to delight in the contrast of colors, flavors, and textures in this hearty dish. Enjoy it as a main course with rice or as a side dish for grilled fare.

Made this for dinner with grilled lamb chops and the shredded romaine & cucumber salad. Very good. Admittedly I varied the recipe slightly. No small eggplants at my local grocery so I just used the common large eggplants and cut them into quarters before baking. Since tomato's are not in season and frankly, I did not feel like grating tomatoes, I used a can of petite diced tomatoes and cooked it briefly with the onion, green pepper, etc. Both my husband and daughter gave it great reviews.
Delicious meatless Monday dinner. Added lentils for protein, but otherwise followed recipe. So yummy!
I HATE eggplant, however I always try to do eggplant recipes for my hubby who is Italian and loves it. This is the first recipe for eggplant that I actually loved, I made it exactly as stated so I gave it 5 stars. Will def put this on my favs list. Excellent veggie dishs, guilt free and yummy.
Wonderful side dish served with grilled Cobia. Easy to make ahead and finish in the oven just before serving. Will definitely make it again and maybe experiment with other stuffing flavors.
