This recipe might be by the Chubby Vegetarian, but according to Organic Facts, eggplants contain a minimal amount of fat or cholesterol and are extremely filling. They can help aid in weight loss and the battle against obesity.

Instructions


Sausages

Into a large bowl, pour olive oil over the peeled eggplants and rub it in so that all of the oil is absorbed. In a small bowl make a spice mixture using the fennel, red pepper flakes, sage, #Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic. Generously rub each eggplant with the spice mixture. You should use all of the spice mixture. Place eggplants in a plastic bag in the refrigerator to marinate for at least an hour or overnight.


Cook eggplants right on the grill a few minutes on each side. Just make sure they're cooked all the way through.


Toppings

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the oil and wait for it to shimmer. Carefully add the potato, onion, and green pepper in a single layer. Allow mixture to cook undisturbed for about 3 minutes or until nicely browned. Toss in the tomato paste and cook until potatoes are tender, for about another 3 minutes. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, cover, and set aside.
