Meaty Mushroom-Stuffed Eggplant

A middle-eastern approach to eggplant and mushrooms. A recipe loaded with umami flavors that will fill you up. You can add some spices such as clove or rosemary to add an additional boost to the dish. You can also substitute beef with ground lamb for a tastier result.

The old-fashioned beans cook slowly in the oven for hours, developing a rich, thick sauce. Baked beans from scratch are the perfect side dish for your next cookout or potluck, and a simple lunch or dinner entrée when paired with cornbread or Boston brown bread!
