No matter how you feel about eggplant, you will fall in love with it in these eggplant roll-ups, stuffed with couscous, spinach, garlic, and feta! The eggplant is spread with hummus, stuffed with a flavorful couscous mixture and baked in marinara sauce for flavor and texture in every bite!
Mediterranean Eggplant and Couscous Roll-Ups with Feta
I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest lover of eggplant, but I want to love it, and so I’m always trying to incorporate it in my foods. Now, I have a reason to really love it with these Mediterranean Eggplant and Couscous Roll-Ups with Feta. My gosh, these are incredible.
The eggplant is first lightly grilled, giving it a slightly charred flavor and cooking it just enough so it can be rolled. Then, the filling is made simply with onions, garlic, couscous, spinach, and feta. The combination is simple, but the flavor is complex!
You’ll spread hummus onto the grilled eggplant slices, stuff them with the couscous mixture, roll up and place in a baking dish with marinara. The marinara is a must and adds such depth to the flavor of this dish as well as a sauce. Some crumbles of feta at the end and voila – a gourmet meal made in under 45 minutes that can feed a hungry crowd.
If you want some modification ideas, here you go:
- Add some toasted slivered almonds into the couscous mixture for some crunch,
- If you truly don’t love eggplant, you can use zucchini slices here, and
- If you’re a meat eater, some ground turkey would work nicely – just cook the turkey and then fold it into the couscous mixture.
I can’t wait to see you all make these – and when you do, please use the hashtag #inspiralized so we can see!
