1. To make the baked stuffed eggplants: Cut eggplant in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh from one half, using a knife and a tablespoon. Dice the other half of the eggplant. Repeat the same process with the other eggplants. Set aside.

2. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until tender, about two minutes. Add the garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is fragrant, about a minute. Add the diced tomatoes and a sprig of rosemary. Bring to a simmer, and simmer uncovered, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add freshly ground pepper and adjust seasoning if needed. Remove the rosemary sprig, and stir in the drained chickpeas. Add diced eggplant from step 1 and cook for another 5 minutes until the sauce is fragrant.

3. Using a spoon, stuff the halved eggplants to the edge and a little more. Transfer the stuffed eggplants to a baking dish or a cast iron skillet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle rosemary leaves. Bake in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes, until eggplant boats are softened and cooked through. Remove from the heat, and allow to cool for at least 5 minutes.

4. You can serve the baked stuffed eggplants warm or cold, with additional rosemary. This dish is delicious the next day, after a quick reheat at 325°F (160°C) in the oven. Enjoy! ❤️
