Easy, meatless meal or an appetizer/snack/salade for more. I like to top them with a cheese slice then broil till lightly browned. Prep time includes 20 minutes to prepare - salt, drain and blot the eggplant slices. You can peel the eggplant though I don't find it bitter.

A little fiddly, but very, very nice. The vinagrette in particular was very unusual, sort of pesto with a hint of orient. We really liked it. Also, I grilled the eggplabt on a grill pan instead of proper grill, and it was just fine. I used both mozzarella and goat cheese, and both went well. Thanks for the recipe!
