Alkaline Recipe: Stuffed Eggplant

Stuffed Eggplant

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 1 large eggplant (look for those with shallow grooves on the bottom, they have less seeds and are not as bitter)
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 8 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 8 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Sea salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and thyme to taste
  • Olive oil for sautéeing

Directions: Soak all produce in 8.0-8.5 pH Chanson alkaline ionized water for 10 minutes. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise, remove pulp and set aside, leaving a scooped-shell. Place the eggplant shells cut-side down and cook for about five minutes in a large skillet coated with olive oil. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. With tongs, transfer shells into a baking dish face up. Add more olive oil to skillet and sautée onions and garlic for 2 minutes over medium heat. Add coarsely chopped eggplant pulp and remaining ingredients and cook over medium-high heat until the majority of the moisture evaporates and you are left with a stew-like mixture. Next, stuff the eggplant shells with the mixture, and bake for 15 minutes.

Alkaline Recipe: Eggplant Marinara

Eggplant Marinara

Try this twist on traditional eggplant parmesan as a main dish. By omitting the parmesan and not frying the eggplant before baking, you will have a more alkaline–but just as delicious–meatless dish the whole family will love. You can even make it vegan if you use vegan mozzarella.

Serves 4

Ingredients: 

1 eggplant
2 jars favorite marinara sauce (or make your own)
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese or vegan mozzarella
1/2 pkg fresh basil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup fresh baby spinach
Olive oil
Pepper, to taste
Sea salt

Directions: Soak vegetables in 8.0-8.5 pH Chanson alkaline ionized water. Slice eggplant, salt on both sides and leave to drain on a wire rack for one hour with aluminum foil and heavy items on top, then dab excess water with paper towels. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a 13 inch glass baking dish with one jar of marinara sauce, top with eggplant, drizzle olive oil on each slice. Top with the remaining marinara, garlic, basil, spinach and cheese (may need to do more than one layer depending on size of eggplant). Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with pepper. Allow to cool five minutes before serving.
