Herby Couscous Stuffed Eggplant Rolls

This recipe combines  of my favourite matters, cauliflower rice and grilled eggplant. The cauliflower rice is quick sautéed till soft and then mixed with a scrumptious combination of parsley, mint, pine nuts, shallots and garlic. The end result is a flavourful and fresh salad very similar to a center japanese couscous. To preserve this recipe paleo and vegan I prevented the usage of dairy, but crumbled feta could be a top notch salty addition to the salad if cheese is part of your diet.

Grilled slices of eggplant are the suitable encasing for the couscous, wrapping the entirety together into pretty serving sized quantities. i am a piece of a grilled eggplant addict and simply love its soft texture and the way it absorbs other flavours, which in this dish is the garlic and herbs from the salad.
