Serving Size 4

1 whole eggplant

1/2 cup MR. SPICE SWEET & SOUR SAUCE

4 tablespoons beef broth, canned, low sodium

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 medium green bell pepper, finely chopped

2 cups mushrooms, finely chopped

1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped

1/2 pound beef flank

1/4 cup flour, whole-grain wheat

3 tablespoons tomato paste, low sodium

1/4 cup cheddar cheese, low sodium, grated

Split the eggplant in half lengthwise. Using a sharp knife, make a slit 1" deep all around the edge of the halves, leaving a margin of about 1/4". Scoop out the inside of each half. Chop the pulp into 1/2" cubes and set aside. Sauté the onions and green bell peppers in half of the beef broth in a heavy pan. Add the mushrooms and cubed eggplant. Cook until the vegetables are tender, stirring often. Continue to cook until the liquids are evaporated. Add 1/4 cup of the MR. SPICE SWEET & SOUR SAUCE and the parsley. Remove from heat. In another pan, heat the remaining beef broth. Add the ground beef flank. Sprinkle in the remaining 1/4 cup of the MR. SPICE SWEET & SOUR SAUCE. Brown the meat. Add the meat to the vegetables. Add the flour and tomato paste. Stir until well blended. Spoon the mixture into the shells and drizzle with a small amount of MR. SPICE SWEET & SOUR SAUCE. Place the stuffed eggplant halves in a shallow pan. Pour some boiling water in the pan to prevent sticking. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, making sure that the water does not disappear. Serve hot from the oven topped with the grated cheese.

NOTE: You can substitute bread crumbs for the flour, but the calories and sodium count will be higher.
