Quinoa Stuffed Za’atar Eggplants with Lemon-Tahini Sauce Print 8 LikeDislike By Alivia Duran Stuffed with quinoa and chickpeas, roasted eggplant is a perfect, warming, winter meal. I don’t eat meat, but I’ve found that even non-vegetarians love this hearty recipe! Meatless meals are anything but boring, and this dish has a unique ingredient that makes it stand out. Za’atar is a savory Middle Eastern spice blend of sesame seeds, a variety of herbs, and salt. It is growing in popularity and is easy to find at speciality grocery or spice shops. Za’atar is a perfect compliment to roasted eggplant and chickpeas, along with a fresh lemon and tahini sauce. You’ll definitely want to make this dish again!
