Turkey and Eggplant Rolls

Sharing is caring!

Covered with sauce!

There is a similar recipe for us vegetarians on my blog but thought I would change it a bit and add some turkey for the husband.  A treat with meat.   Just add some turkey mince to the eggplants, cover with sauce and voila!  The spices add some zing to it!

A simple supper dish and another way to serve turkey.  Add some veggies on the side and you have a hearty dish that should keep the table quiet!


2 eggplants (aubergines), trimmed and sliced thinly lenghtwise

400g turkey mince

1 red onion, finely chopped (I put mine in a blender)

2 tspn ground coriander

1 tspn ground cumin

1/4 tspn salt

1/4 tspn pepper

3 tblspn olive oil

1 portion tomato sauce with 1/2 tspn cayenne pepper added


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/400F degrees.
  • Brush the eggplants with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and place on a baking tray.  Cook for 15 minutes until golden.
  • Mix the turkey mince and onion in a bowl. Season with the spices.
  • Cover a baking dish with half of the tomato sauce.
  • Place a tablespoon of turkey mince across an eggplant slice and roll up. Place upon the tomato sauce.  Repeat for all aubergine slices.
  • Spoon with the remaining sauce and cover with silver foil.  Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Eat and enjoy!

    Hi Angela, I am new to your site and love it. I just wish you would have recipes for one person and in metric measures as you sometime have. Otherwise, I congratulate you as your recipes are excellent. Eliza

      Thanks Eliza. I sometimes put metric measures but need to be more consistent with this!

    Sounds delish – do you use raw turkey or cooked turkey when rolling it up?
