Ingredients

  • 2 eggplants
  • 150 gr. mushroom
  • 50 gr. of nuts
  • 1 onion
  • 150 ml. of vegetable béchamel
  • 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • vegan parmesan (optional)

Instructions

  1. Wash the aubergines and dry them well. We cut them in half lengthwise by removing the tail, we make some cuts in the pulp, we put a little salt and oil and put on a baking tray protected with parchment paper. We introduce them in the preheated oven at 175º for 30 minutes. After this time, we remove them from the oven and let them warm up.
  2. Prepare the bechamel and reserve.
  3. We wash the mushrooms and drain them well, cut them into very small pieces and reserve them. Peel the onion, grate it and reserve it too.
  4. We put the nuts in a chopper or coffee grinder and crush them until they are like flour.
  5. When the aubergines are warm, we remove the pulp and cut it into small pieces too.
  6. In a frying pan, drain the oil and heat over medium heat. When the oil is tempered, we toss the onion and let it be done for 5 minutes.
  7. Then add the mushrooms, stir everything and let them cook for 6 minutes.
  8. Add the pulp of the aubergines and the ground nuts, add the salt and stir again, letting it be done for 5 more minutes.
  9. We turn off the heat and let the filling cool down for about 30 minutes.
  10. We preheat the oven to 200º while filling the eggplant bottoms. Once they are all filled, cover them with the béchamel sauce and place them on a baking tray covered with baking paper or a baking dish.
  11. We introduce the aubergines in the oven and bake them for 10 minutes. If we see that after this time, they are not yet very golden, we leave them a little longer, watching that they do not burn. Once they are golden brown, we take them out of the oven and, if we wish, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese with cashew nuts to enhance the flavor.
