A New Eggplant Recipe With Parmesan Crust

A New Eggplant Recipe With Parmesan Crust

A new eggplant recipe! When you begin to believe there are no other ways to cook eggplant, there comes a simple recipe you’d never seen before.

This eggplant recipe seemes too simple for me and I was a little bit doubtful when I first tried it. Well, it IS simple, but also very tasty and it is that kind of recipe that fits any meal. You can prepare it as a side, as a part of buffet lunch, or even add some mozzarella and tomato sauce and put back some minutes in the oven until the mozzarella melts…to have an alternative eggplant parmesan… without frying!

I prepared them with both types of eggplant: the common and the purple one. I believe the purple one is better in this case, even if my son didn’t find a difference ;-D.

I found this recipe on a blog I like so much, Alexandra’s kitchen. I have prepared some of Alexandra’s recipes with much success, such as the ricotta cheesecake.
