Here's one I like, you can probably skip the step that toasts the breadcrumbs in butter and make it vegan. I usually use the dried kind anyway. Also, if you google stuffed eggplant + vegetarian there are a bunch that come up. Most of the veg ones I've seen can be easily made vegan too. You're probably better than I am at making the substitutions, though.<br><br><br>
Vegetarian stuffed eggplant.<br><br>
2 Large eggplant<br>
2 small zuchinni<br>
1.75C mushrooms<br>
1/2 red bell pepper<br>
16 oz can diced tomatoes<br>
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped<br>
1 large scallion<br>
3 stalks celery<br>
1/2 yellow onion<br>
2 cloves garlic, minced<br>
1 cup breadcrumbs<br>
2T butter<br>
4T olive oil<br><br>
Chop all vegetables into small bite sized pieces. Mince garlic,parsley, scallion and slice onion thinly.<br><br>
Remove green end of eggplant and slice lengthwise. Cut into boats, leaving an edge all around to hold filling. salt eggplant and set aside for 20 minutes, then rinse and pat dry. Chop inner part into bite sized pieces, and lightly brush eggplant shells with olive oil, place in baking dish and bake shells at 350 for however long it takes you to make the filling.<br><br>
Sautee garlic, scallion, celery and onion in 3T olive oil. Add zuchinni, parsley, and red pepper, toss lightly in pan for a few minutes until they start to cook. Splash a little sherry or wine if desired into panand toss thoroughly. After liquid cooks off, add mushrooms and tomatoes until mixed. Then add tomato paste, stir thoroughly. Lower heat, Cover and simmer 7-10 minutes.<br><br>
While it simmers, toast bread crumbs in a pan with butter, stirring until butter is melted and mixed with the crumbs. Remove from heat.<br><br>
Remove lid, stir one last time. Remove eggplant from oven, spoon filling into shells. Top with breadcrumbs and return to oven, baking 20-30 minutes at 350 until bread crumbs are golden brown.

I found this site too, don't know if you've seen it. Some of these are labeled vegan. Looks like it's a whole low fat veggie site!<br><br><a href="http://www.fatfree.com/recipes/stuffed-veg/" target="_blank">http://www.fatfree.com/recipes/stuffed-veg/</a>
