Many months ago I discovered a new and delicious way to prepare eggplant. It's in the elegant fan shape, a recipe I found here. (if you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will find the english version) It's easy to prepare and healthy because it's baked not fried! Before, I was a bit apprehensive about cooking with an eggplant, the only way I knew how to prepare it was fried, and you know how much oil it can soak up! But this recipe is super easy to make and doesn't require much time, and the aroma of the basil is amazing!
|Fresh basil from my 'garden'|
3 large tomatoes cut in half then sliced thin
300gm of feta crumbled
3 garlic cloves finely chopped
cup of parsley
basil (best if fresh but can also use dry)
Wash the eggplant, dry and cut slices as thin as you can but make sure the cut slices are attached to the top,
salt in between slices and let rest for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes drain water (won't be much) then oil all slices and stuff in between slices with all the ingredients as much as you can.
Bake at 350F for about 45-60 minutes (baking time depends on size of eggplant)
are you an eggplant fan?
