Roasted Eggplant Fan

Roasted Eggplant Fan - All that's Jas

Exchanging secrets with my daughter without risking someone eavesdropping is just one benefit of speaking multiple languages. My chances to find great recipes are tripled and that’s another benefit.  I discovered this roasted eggplant fan on Serbian site MEZZE. I can’t vouch that this is a Serbian recipe though; just saying it’s a nice advantage to search recipes that are not written in English.

First, I fell in love with the presentation. Doesn’t it look fancy? Then, the simple and healthy ingredients got me really excited. Not to mention the ease of preparing this dish. And the taste? You’ll have to make it yourself to find out because I’m keeping it a secret. I can only tell you that it’s jako ukusno or sehr leker.


 

Ingredients:
Serves 2-4

1 medium-large Eggplant
2-3 large Tomatoes
1-2 large Garlic cloves
6 oz. Feta Cheese, crumbled
Fresh Parsley
Fresh Basil
Olive oil
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Rinse the eggplant and pat dry with paper towel. Cut the eggplant into thin slices, but leave attached at the stem. Grease each eggplant slice with oil; season with salt and pepper.

Cut tomatoes into thin rings. Finely chop the garlic, parsley and basil leaves. Place the eggplant on a parchment paper-lined baking pan. Stuff eggplant slices with tomato, garlic, feta, parsley and basil. Press the eggplant slightly with the palm of your hand to form a fan. Drizzle with more oil.

Bake for about one hour. If there is still liquid in the pan lower the oven temperature to 200 and bake 15 minutes longer or until all liquid has evaporated. Length of baking depends on the size of the eggplant.

    I’m not going to lie, I’m really nervous to try eggplant because I’m not sure I’ll like it… But our son, nicknamed “Eggplant,” (no, I’m not joking) has been begging to try his namesake. I think this recipe might just be what I use! It looks fun, different, and really appetizing! Thanks for inspiring me! – Jerusha, TheDisneyChef.com

      OMG, that’s too funny! What a nickname, I love it 🙂 You have to make it, even if you only use a baby eggplant just for him. It wasn’t until my late adulthood that I started warming up to eggplant meals. With enough garlic, I can eat anything, ha! Thanks for stopping in!

    I’ve got a question for you, Jas, in no direct relation to your recipe (havent got the hang of eggplants yet!) : what and how do you get to the printed recipe template like you have there? Sorry if the question sounds silly (am still learning!) …I’ve been googling and I’m just curious what you use for yours. 🙂

      Oh, Ann, you can ask me anything you want and I’d be glad to respond if I know the answer 🙂 For the recipe template, I am using a plugin called ZipList Recipe. It is easy to customize. I am sure there are other ones out there. Hope this helped. Hugs 😀

    I am a huge eggplant fan and yours is just so pretty! Love this idea and so simple to make so that is even better. Now the Asian eggplant would be really long, but really skinny, you would need a huge long platter to serve those up on.

      Those are my favorite types of eggplants. They tend to have sweet, somewhat nutty flavor, especially when roasted. 🙂
