Preparation:

1- Preheat the oven to 160 Degrees C
2-Cut off both ends of the eggplant and slice it thinly (you will not be able to roll it if cut too thick) lengthwise.ย Brush the eggplant slices ย with olive oil on both sides. Place in oven to bake for about 40 minutes till soft enough to roll
3- While the eggplant is cooking, start to prepare the stuffing. Cook the quinoa as per the instructions adding in a vegetable stock cube for extra flavoring. Also add in small cubes of carrots. Cook for about 20 minutes, in the last 2 minutes add in the smoked tofu.
4 – In about 20 minutes or so both should be done. Start adding in about a tbsp of stuffing into the end of the eggplant and roll.Place back to into baking tray.
5- Mix the tomato juice and water, season with salt & pepper. Pour over eggplant rolls and place back into the oven for 20 minutes
