  • Summary

    In this meatless version of the classic Greek dish, bulgur wheat stands in for ground meat in a spiced-tomato filling surrounded by eggplant layers and topped with a béchamel sauce. The eggplant and bulgur pack this dish with fiber. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.

    Ingredients

    • 3 peeled eggplants, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 2 1/2 pounds)
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • tablespoons Cooking spray
    • 2 cups chopped onion
    • 4 cups garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 cup uncooked bulgur
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 2 cups organic vegetable broth
    • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
    • 1 teaspoons (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
    • 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh Romano cheese
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
