Recipe: Fattet Magdoos–Eggplant Casserole

It seems like I’ve been eating a lot of eggplants lately!

“Fattet Magdoos” is a Middle Eastern casserole dish made with eggplants, plain yogurt, ground meat, and crunchy bread. A food from each food group adds a texture and flavor that makes this simple dish a fiesta of its own.

Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.

  1. this looks beautiful, aubergines are one of my favourite vegetables, i just adore them, and especially in cuisine from your part of the world, be it from Jordan, Syria or Lebanon. i prepare batoursh at home a lot- but i am not sure if that is specifically syrian (aleppo) or also eaten in jordan. please do share more of your Jordanian recipes with us.

      Thanks shayma. I never really liked egg plants (aubergines) when I was young but now I’m in love. This dish is prepared in Jordan, Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon (with maybe minor variations). What is batoursh? I will do my best to share more Jordanian food.
