Eggplant Bruschetta
Permalink  
 


I served these at a brunch, and they went over well.  They can be eaten just like a bruschetta, but they are much better for you (and I think eggplant tastes better than bread).  
1 onion - chopped
3 large cloves of garlic - minced or crushed
1/4 cup of basil leaves
2 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes
1 tablespoon of olive oil
2-3 small to medium eggplants
In a frying pan, saute the onions and garlic in olive oil
chop the basil and mix with the tomatoes
Add the tomato mixture to the pan, and saute for 2-3 minutes
Cut the eggplant in half, and then length wise.  Brush the bottoms with olive oil.
Place in a baking pan - I use stoneware- cut side facing up
score the cut side of the eggplant with a knife - just a few slits for each piece
spoon the mixture on top of each eggplant piece
Bake for 15 minutes uncovered
Add grated Vegan "Parm" cheez if you please.

mmm sounds wonderful, when I saw the title I thought it was going to be something with gluten in so very happy that it isn't!
I have eggplant that needs using today so will report back after I try it!

This tasted delicious, but following your instructions didn't really work, I used medium sized aubergines and they took around 45 minutes rather than 15? Next time I make it I think I would cut them into 1" rounds and put the topping onto those so it cooks faster.

Wow! The eggplant was firm enough to pick up and eat with your fingers, but warmed throughout. Maybe my eggplants were more small than medium. Thanks for the feedback.
