About this recipe: Rich and delicious baked aubergines (eggplant) with tomato and fresh mozzarella. This version requires no frying and no baking. Enjoy!

Makes: 2 large portions

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 squashed cloves of garlic
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 1 ball of mozzarella, torn into pieces

  • freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Heat pan on low-medium heat and add oil and garlic. After 3 minutes add the chopped tomatoes. As the sauce begins to simmer add the tomato puree and stir it in, turning the heat up. Add the sugar and salt to taste once the sauce has thickened.
  2. Slice the aubergines into thin discs and pat them dry with kitchen roll to absorb the bitterness. Grill and turn over when the slices colour. When the aubergines are lightly toasted around the edges, take out and mix into the tomato sauce.
  3. Spoon 1/3 of the mixture into a baking dish and smooth evenly. Add half of the mozzarella. Spoon another third into the baking dish and cover again with half of the mozzarella. Spoon the final third into the dish and cover with grated Parmesan.
  4. Grill under high heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
