Eggplant stuffed is char-grilled to bring out a smokey sweetness, then stuffed with hearty lentils cooked with Middle Eastern spices. Paired with a creamy cucumber salad made with herbs and vegan yogurt and a side of golden turmeric tahini sauce, this plant-based, grain-free dish will take your tastebuds on a trip to the Middle East. Chef Lena suggests serving it pita bread or rice to make it even heartier for dinner.

Only complaint is that my package opened in transit and leaked all over the box. I lost most of the tahini sauce.
