Quick Stuffed Eggplant recipe – a life savior for the super busy folks
One would assume being a work at home mom is such an easy breezy experience. While it’s very rewarding, as moms get to spend much more time with their kids when they work at home, it’s also super time consuming. When you’re on a 9 to 5 schedule in an office there isn’t much distraction around you, allowing you to focus on the job and thus be more productive.
When you’re a work at home mom (and I assume works the same for dads) there are these constant needs your kids keep having about every second of the day, turning into a quite disturbing distraction when it comes to being productive. You need to figure out ways to do everything at a much faster pace, tricks to keep your house clean and organized, discover super quick recipes to make for your family etc.
Thanks to my baby sister I can now save a few minutes and dedicate them to my work. I am now equipped with another super easy, super quick recipe that’s also pretty healthy, not to mention tasty and very nourishing – Quick Stuffed Eggplant.
I never pictured myself eating eggplant in any other form than an eggplant salad (recipe I’m hoping to be able to make and post soon) or grilled eggplant. There is nothing fabulous about how this recipe looks and at first that was a turn off for me but I’ve learnt to avoid judging books by the cover and here I am, the newest fan of the quick stuffed eggplant dish.
