  • salt to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  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.
