DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the eggplant into ½” thick rounds. Lightly season them with salt on both sides and let sit on a paper towel for 30 minutes to let water to come out of the eggplant.
  • Brush or drizzle olive oil on top of each slice and grill them for 2 -3 minutes each side until cooked.
  • Blend the basil leaves with 4 tablespoons olive oil, 2 garlic cloves, lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon salt in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  • Cut the tomatoes crosswise to 1/4” thick rounds.
  • On an oiled baking pan or using parchment paper, arrange 4 eggplant rounds side by side. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of the basil-garlic mixture on top of each one, then generously sprinkle the cheese crumbs. Top each with tomato rings. Add another layer of eggplant, basil spread, cheese and tomato rounds and top with the rest of the crumbled feta. Make as many layers as you can. Usually, 1 large eggplant will make 4, 3 layer stacks.
  • Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes until the tomatoes are wilted and the cheese is soft and melted.
  • Enjoy!
