Quinoa Stuffed Eggplant



This is a variation of the stuffed eggplant I've made before (http://farejudgement.blogspot.com/2011/05/stuffed-baby-eggplant.html ). I wanted to make a slightly healthier version, mostly, to use up the remaining quinoa in the pantry (I purchased the black quinoa for salads that I can't wait to open!).



1 cup cooked white quinoa
1 large tomato, skinned
3 tbsp cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 small shallot, minced
1-2 tbsp lemon juice ( adjust acid based on taste)
Flesh of 3-4 baked baby eggplants
Salt
Fontina cheese, grated (for the top)
