Beef Stuffed Aubergines

Taking inspiration from my Greek Cookery Class I created this little dish mainly because I wanted to find something exciting to make to go with the Tahini Sauce, which I was expertly shown how to make!  I do love to stuff a vegetable with whatever I can get my hands on, and all the flavours come together in this dish making it really simple to make, but fabulous on flavour.  Me being me and always needing a carb alongside with my dinner I made some Spinach Rice to go with it - now all I need is a glass of Rose and a beach!
