    Serves: 4 

    • 1 medium aubergine, sliced into 1/2 cm rounds
    • salt to taste
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 small red onion, halved and sliced

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Sprinkle the aubergine slices with salt, and let stand for about 10 minutes in a colander placed in the sink to remove some of the water.
    2. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Quickly brown the aubergine slices on each side.
    3. Place a layer of the aubergine slices in a baking dish. Place some tomato slices over the aubergine, and then a few slices of onion. Repeat layers until you run out of aubergine. Sprinkle balsamic vinegar over the top.
    4. In a small bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs and remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread in a layer over the vegetables.
    5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in preheated oven, until the top is golden brown and the aubergine is tender.
