When I went to the super market last Saturday, I bought too many eggplants that I had no idea what to do with them! One of my eggplant-experiments was this one: I made mediterranean rolls stuffed with frumenty! They turned out great and we enjoyed them a lot. I used many delicious products fromthe online delicatessen  yoleni’s which brings at our doorstep within a few hours the best greek products. Stay tuned for the other eggplant experiment!

Take care, our dear friends!
