stuffed eggplant

>Does anyone have a quick and easy recipe for stuffed eggplant?
I found this idea in Rose Elliot's Complete Veg. Cookbook.  It looks fairly
easy as far as eggplant recipes go.  (Salting them is boring but needed I
think...)  Hope it helps!

To prepare eggplant:
Cut in half and scoop out the insides. Sprinkle the shells and the flesh
with salt and put aside 30 min.. Rinse off the bitter juice and pat dry.
Place shells on a sprayed casserole dish.

Chick Pea Filling --for 2 whole eggplants
1 onion, peeled and sliced
1 garlic clove, crushed
3 large tomatoes, skinned and chopped
6 oz (175g) chickpeas, cooked and drained (I'm sorry, this measurement is
for dried. Could you estimate for canned?)
2-3 tsps lemon juice
2 tbsps fresh parsley
Set oven 350F.
In a bit of broth or water, fry the onion, garlic, and eggplant flesh until
tender (10min.)
Add the tomatoes and cook 2-3min. more.  Remove from heat and stir in
remaining ingredients.  Pile the filling high into the shells and bake
30-40 min. 

The cookbook suggests serving them with mashed potatoes and a green veg.
