Turkish Stuffed Eggplant (Karniyarik)
Learn how to turn easy-to-find ingredients into this flavorful Turkish stuffed eggplant. It's known as karniyarik, meaning "split belly," which refers to the technique used to stuff these. Because they're so tough, eggplant need to be parbaked; take this time to saute the ground lamb with its accompanying array of spices, onions, and peppers. Then you'll split open the belly of the eggplant, add the stuffing, and bake them in a little bit of chicken broth until beautifully tender.
