Aubergine, tomato & parmesan bake (Berenjenas al horno con tomate y queso parmesano)


I love eggplant (almost like zucchini) so I found this recipe the other day and made last week .
The mix of aubergine, parmesan cheese, tomatoes and basil is glorious!
Course is for those who love the eggplant.
I know there are many :)
My mom  asked If I could  make this recipe tomorrow!
I told her of course! One of the things I like to go her house al these last days  my mom  asking  me certain dishes that she really love.
We have had  a great time together watching recipes in books and old magazines:)

Ingredients


2 garlic cloves crushed
5 tablespoon oil
2 cans chopped tomatos
1 small onion finally chopped
or 6 tomatoes ripe but firm 
2 tablespoon tomato puree
4 aubergine cut into round thick slices
100 grams parmesan freshly grated
20 g basil leaves
2 eggs beaten

Method

Heat oven to  200°c (400° F)
In a shallow pan, mix together the garlic 3 tablespoon of oil and chopped onion.
Cook over a high heat for 3 minutes. tip in the tomatoes, then simmer for 8 minutes, stirring every now and then.
Stir in the tomato puree.

Meanwhile heat a griddle pan until very hot. Brush a few of the aubergines with a little oil then add to the pan.
Cook over a high heat through about 5-7 minutes.
Lift onto kitchen paper and do the next batch.

Tip: when frying aubergine slices youll find they will absorb any amount of oil instantly.
dont be tempted to add more. As they cook aubergines release their juices along with some of the absorbed oil.

When all the aubergines are cooked, lay a few of them in the bottom of the ovenproof dish. Then sppon over some tomatoes sauce.
Sprinkle with parmensan cheese and some basil leaves.
Add seasoning, then repeat this process wityh all the remaining ingredients.
Finally pour the beatenb eggs over the top and sprinkle over a little more parmesan.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the topping is golden.

  4. Gloria, I'd like this recipe...except for the eggplant. I may give it a try using zucchini as a substitute. For some reason, I can't get past the texture of eggplant but I like zucchini. Thanks for the idea and the recipe! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. Hi Gloria,
    I LOVE eggplant! I can't wait to plant more eggplant this year in the garden. This is one of my very best favorite ways to enjoy eggplant. Oh they are so yummy. I can't wait to make them this way again.

    I noticed you didn't salt your eggplant to squeeze out the acid. I wonder perhaps I could skip that step too sometimes. I'll have to try it and see. Thank you so much for sharing, Gloria...

    P.S. I heard on the news today about a volcano erupting in Chile. I hope everything is alright over at your Mom's. Please be safe dear Gloria...

    1. Yes the vulcano is quiet now lol
      We were lucky be here when it begin with some things!
      Really the recipe doesnt tell nothing about salt! yes I remember others say that about salt but this not.
      Only I cut and fry!
      My mom is ok now ! But all this month she is alone to cook, clean and groceries. So I go two or three times a week to help her, cook and buy some things!
      hugs dear!

    2. So glad to hear everything is okay Gloria and that your Mom is doing better. I'm going to try it next time without salt and see what happens:) Thanks Gloria:)
