heat, cover, and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

In a large frying pan, add the water and heat over medium heat. Then add
the onion, garlic, peppers, and the eggplant insides, and saute, adding a
little more water as needed. Then add the tomato puree, salt, pepper,
walnuts, and chickpeas. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes, stirring

Preheat oven to 350.

Turn off the heat for all three pans. Drain the eggplant shells from the
water. Add the cooked quinoa, wheat flour, and gluten flour to the
vegetable saute and stir well. Place the eggplant shells in a large
casserole dish with a cover. Fill the eggplant shells with the quinoa
mixture. Put the cover on the casserole dish, and place in the oven. Bake
at 350 for 1 hour. Serve with a steamed vegetable, such as cauliflower, and
a green salad, such as a spinach salad.
