WHAT TO HAVE WITH BLACK BEANS STUFFED AUBERGINE?
First, you should know that you may have some leftover aubergine stuffing after stuffing the halves of aubergine. So you could simply serve the leftover stuffing on side of your Black Beans Stuffed Aubergine, along with some salad. I also like to spread the leftover stuffing on top of an avocado toast and then serve it on side.
Here are my suggestions on what to serve with this Black Beans Stuffed Aubergine recipe:
- Squash Finger Nuggets (gluten-free | vegan)
- Spicy Potato Chips (oil-free | easy)
- Mushroom, Lime and Peas Risotto (in Instant Pot).
You could also add some extra 3 Ingredients Vegan Parmesan (less than 2 minutes) to top your Stuffed Aubergine after baking.
