    Would never have thought to soak eggplant in milk!

    Gday Saw this today and even though is a simple dish, one will just have to try as I only used to salt the eggplant slices both saide for about an hour

    guess the milk also takes out some bitterness too?


    1.Peel the eggplant and cut in thin slices.
    2.Soak in salted milk for one hour then drain.
    3.Fry the eggplant slices in some olive oil. Drain on paper towels. Set aside.
    4.Mix the feta cheese and cream cheese with some chopped up fresh basil. Add the egg whites and a handful of chopped onion, previously sauteed in butter till soft (optional).
    5.Slice the tomatoes and line the bottom of the dish with them; take each eggplant slice and place a tablespoon of the cheese mixture on the eggplant; roll it up (secure with a toothpick if needed).
    6.Bake in a 350F oven for about 30 minutes. Serve with some chopped basil sprinkled on top.

    no I must have missed it and will try and find it later....

    thanks for highlighting it

    am still have some navigational problems (our time) re internal server errors, maintenance and other errors

    so am hoping this too is temporary as the site was just started to run a bit more smoothly too

    I would expect the milk is said to do that. Not sure if it does but I think so. People often soak beef liver in milk to take out some of the bitter taste, or so they say.
