Vegetarian Sloppy Joes


1 large eggplant, cubed
1 cup chopped shitaki mushrooms
1 1/2 cups uncooked brown rice
1 can Manwich (Bold was pretty good)
1/2 can (the empty Manwhich can) of red wine
4 cups water
1 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup olive oil

Preheat oven to 350F

Mix the eggplant, mushrooms, brown rice, Manwich, and red wine. Coat the bottom of a large, glass baking dish with the olive oil. Spread in eggplant mixture. Pour the water over the top (it should cover the mix) and cover with aluminum foil.
Cook for 1 hour (otherwise the rice won't cook thru)
Take off the foil, sprinkle cheese on the top, and put in for another 15 min.
Serve with buns like you would for normal sloppy joes
