About this recipe: I named this recipe after the beautiful summer nights I spent with my family on the balcony eating this tasty recipe, because at this season in Greece we have plenty of aubergines and cook them in various ways.


Serves: 4 

  • 2 large aubergines
  • 125ml olive oil for frying
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 425g dried breadcrumbs
  • 150g crumbled feta cheese

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Remove the leaves from the aubergines, and slice in half lengthways. Carefully scoop out the centres of the aubergines, leaving a 1cm shell so they resemble boats. Cut the centre portion into small pieces, and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and saute for a few minutes, until tender. Add the aubergine pieces, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Then, stir in the tomato, green pepper and parsley. Simmer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat, and transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the breadcrumbs until evenly blended. Divide the mixture evenly between the four aubergine shells. Sprinkle feta cheese over the top. Place the aubergine halves on a baking tray.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are browned and the cheese is melted. Serve hot or cold. I prefer them chilled.
