These really are super delicious, even though I made them into wraps rather than subs and got double of the amount. I did not have fire roasted tomatoes either, but added zing to ordinary tomatoes with harissa. Wow! This would be so good on so many things, like pizza, pasta...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450°; heat a small skillet with olive oil and cracked garlic over medium-low heat.
  2. Meanwhile, trim ends off eggplants and remove a sliver off one side, so eggplant sits flat while you slice it.
  3. Cut eggplant into ½-inch thick slices.
  4. Place eggplant slices on cookie sheets; when the garlic sizzles in the oil, use a pastry brush to brush both sides of sliced eggplant with garlic oil.
  5. Season eggplant with salt and pepper; roast in oven for 15 minutes until tender, turning once.
  6. Meanwhile, place 2 tablespoons of the remaining garlic oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat; to the hot oil add chopped garlic and red onions.
  7. Stir/saute garlic/onions for 2-3 minutes, then add in the tomatoes and tomato sauce; season with salt and pepper.
  8. Decrease heat and let sauce thicken.
  9. Remove eggplant from oven; place open sub rolls on a broiler pan; preheat broiler.
  10. Pile layers of eggplant, roasted tomato sauce, and basil into sub rolls, equally dividing ingredients among the rolls.
  11. Top subs with Parmigiano and smoked mozzarella.
  12. Place under the broiler to melt cheese; serve hot.
