Preparation steps


Rinse quinoa with water, cook with 2.5 times the amount of salted water for about 15 minutes until al dente.


Meanwhile, peel and finely dice onion and garlic. Clean and wash the celery and cut into small cubes. Heat oil in a large pot. Sauté onion, garlic and celery in it for 2 minutes over medium heat, stirring.


Clean eggplants, wash, cut in half lengthwise and slightly hollow out, chop the flesh. Wash spinach, spin dry and chop coarsely. Roast almond flakes in a hot pan without fat for 3 minutes over medium heat until golden brown.


Mix half of it with eggplant flesh, spinach, onions, garlic, and celery into the quinoa and season with salt, pepper, and harissa. Fill mixture into eggplant halves and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the eggplants in a preheated oven at 200 °C /400 ˚F for 25 minutes.


Meanwhile, mix feta with lemon juice and cream until creamy. Wash parsley, shake dry and chop coarsely. Spread feta cream on eggplants and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds, remaining almond flakes and parsley.
