Serves: 2 

  • 12 thin slices of aubergine

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:13min 

  1. Place the aubergine slices on a baking tray and grill them for 2 to 3 minutes, turning them over after 2 minutes.
  2. In a food processor, add the basil and salt and pulse for a few seconds. Add the tomato pieces, oil and vinegar. Pulse again for a few seconds and taste to see if you need more salt.
  3. Pour the tomato and basil sauce over the aubergine slices. To garnish, sprinkle with some extra olive oil and a few basil leaves, if desired.


You can also chop half a garlic clove with the basil and tomatoes. If you don't have fresh basil, you can use dried oregano.

This was good but needed a little something. Next time I think I will add a little seasoning, either Louisiana seasoning or some red pepper flakes. - 12 Sep 2012
