Eggplants Stuffed with Potato Purée & Mozzarella

Eggplants Stuffed with Potato Purée & Mozzarella

Roasted eggplants, stuffed with mashed potatoes and mozzarella. Alternatively Greek stuffed 'little shoes'. Delicious, easy and filling.
Eggplant is a tender perennial plant of the family Strychnoid (Solanaceae) and is cultivated for its homonymous fruit. Eggplant dominates in Mediterranean dishes. For us the moussaka and the shoes, the Italian parmesan aubergine and the Turkish imam baildi are among the best known. It is also roasted, fried, stuffed, salad and in vinegar (pickled).
Eggplant has low nutritional value and characteristic taste. It contains a greenish substance, strychnine, which can cause stomach upset when fruits are eaten unripe or very ripe. That's why attention is needed.
