Italian seasoned ground turkey and mushrooms fill these delicious eggplant roll ups, baked in a flavorful tomato sauce. This recipe is gluten free, dairy free and Whole30 compliant!

Although I love all of my recipes, this might just be my favorite Whole30 recipe so far (shhh don’t tell the others!)

What can I say, I’m a sucker for Italian food. Even when I was a picky eater growing up, I always loved my Italian food! I know, the blasphemy that a food blogger used to be a picky eater!

Usually pasta and cheese are at the top of my Italian menu but I was determined to make an equally amazing Italian dish without the pasta and cheese that was Whole30 compliant.

Yesterday was the first official day of summer, and with the start of summer comes the start of grilling season!

When most people think of grilling, they think meats, Coffee Crusted Tri Tip, Chili Lime Shrimp, or Chicken Fajita Skewers, and while I love all these meaty dishes on the grill, I also love grilled vegetables!

Crispy Eggplant & Prosciutto Caprese Salad

Crispy Eggplant & Prosciutto Caprese Salad Recipe

Ever since I created the Stacked Beet Salad on Little Leopard Book in March, I’ve had the idea to create another stacked dish of sorts with Eggplant Parmesan.

I ended up with a quick and easy eggplant parm of sorts that I paired with one of my favorite salads of all time, the caprese salad.

Spicy Eggplant Stuffed Peppers

When your daughter is a food blogger, you not only get Fathers Day Brunch, you get Fathers Day Dinner! I told my Dad to let me know what he wanted for dinner. He finally decided on my Mexican Meatloaf (with a little persuasion from me, it is just so good!)

I decided to change it up with a couple new sides including these delicious Spicy Eggplant Stuffed Peppers.

Ingredients (makes 3 stuffed peppers)

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 large eggplant (peeled and cubed)
  • 1/2 red onion (diced)
  • 1 jalapeño (de-seeded and diced)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 bell peppers (color(s) of your preference)
  • 1/4 cup queso fresco
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro (chopped)

Start by heating the olive oil in a large skillet.  Add the eggplant, onion and jalapeño and sauté 3-4 minutes.

Add the chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper and sauté an additional 2-3 minutes.

Evenly distribute the mixture into three bell peppers.

Place the peppers standing in an oven safe dish. Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes.

Remove from the oven and top with the cheese.

Place back in the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes. Remove, top with the cilantro and serve.

A little close up of these colorful beauties!

These could be easily made for 2 or 20 and add a colorful and flavorful dish to any Mexican dinner or fiesta!
