Eggplant No Name Recipe

Eggplant no name Recipe

Happy Labor Day Wishes!

Have you ever made a recipe and had trouble naming it? Meet Eggplant ( fill in the blank) recipe. Everything I thought of had the word stack in it and we ( hubby and I) thought if I used the word stack it would sound like something from your local pancake house.  Although it is delicious, it currently remains nameless…..perhaps you can help me name it. I am happy to share that most of the vegetables came from our garden. A garden that has been abundant all season and now is dwindling. We are already missing so many of the the fresh vegetables we enjoyed this summer. We picked a bunch of tomatoes though and I will be making marinara ( spaghetti starter). For my marinara recipe click here. I am always creating new eggplant recipes ,I will share more with you soon I am sure :-)

What You Need

1 Medium eggplant (cleaned, peeled and sliced into about 8 slices)

1 Large red bell pepper sliced (into about 8 rings)

1 Large tomato (sliced into about 8 slices)

1 8oz. Package of mushrooms (sliced) extra for topping optional

1 Cup mozzarella cheese (grated or sliced)

4 Basil leaves chopped (extra for garnish, optional)

½ tsp. Dry oregano

¼ tsp. Dry thyme

½ tsp. Black pepper

6 Tbsp.Olive Oil

Nonstick pan

Tongs

Broiling pan

Spatula

Serving platter

Before You Start – Heat broiler to medium. It’s important to have everything ready for this recipe as it goes quickly and needs to be served while it’s still hot.

Lets Make It! In a skillet over medium high heat combine olive oil and garlic and sauté until garlic is tender (about 3 minutes). Add oregano, thyme, black pepper and stir. Add green pepper rings and mushrooms and continue to sauté until tender (about 5 minutes) add eggplant, tomatoes and chopped basil and continue to sauté flipping eggplant and tomato slices only once ( about 3 minutes) until all are cooked through.

Using tongs start stacking the vegetables onto the broiler pan, starting with the eggplant slice, then the tomato, a pinch of cheese, then the bell pepper, then top with another slice of eggplant, mushroom and sprinkle with cheese ( or place a slice of cheese on top) repeat until you have made 4 stacks of vegetables. Note I added a few basil leaves on the tomato slice too. Place in the broiler for about 1-2 minutes to melt the cheese. Using a spatula transfer to serving platter, top with more mushrooms and basil if desired.

Serves 2-4

 

*Katies Tid Bits- try adding a Bermuda onion ring to your stack. This is great with zucchini slices too.

 

Do you have any ideas on what to call this one?
