Broiled Basil Eggplant

Broiled Basil Eggplant created by Dr. Jenny

Eggplant that isn't breaded and fried! The cooking time for this recipe is for a large eggplant....if you use the smaller japanese style eggplant, reduce the broiling time.

directions

  • Combine the first six ingredients in a small bowl, beating with a wire whisk until blended. Set aside.
  • Brush both sides of eggplant slices with the 3 tbsp olive oil. Arrange eggplant slices in a single layer ona n ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially opened) for 5 minutes on each side or until tender and lightly browned. (Smaller eggplants will need less time).
  • Arrange eggplant slices on an ovenproof platter or casserole dish, overlapping slices slightly. Arange cheese slices over the eggplant slices. Broil for 1 minute or until cheese melts.
  • Whisk the reserved olive oil mixture until blended. Spoon over the eggplant. Garnish with fresh basil sprigs if desired.

    I may have cut back a little on the cheese because the star of this was the lemon and herbs! Like candy!

    An easy dish. I made it a bit softer than called for. Also I would reduce the quantity of oil. Like the ease of making it.

    This recipe is so easy to do. I like that this is broiled instead than pan-fried. The dressing is really good with the fresh herbs. Thanks breezermom :) Made for the Count Dracula and His Hot Bites for ZWT7
