Here is a quick and easy way to prepare eggplant. The best part is that this technique involves very little oil. Consequently, it produces a light result that is also low in calories. Eggplant slices prepared according to step #1 may be substituted in other recipes that call for slices that have been breaded and fried.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium eggplant, peeled or unpeeled
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large tomatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated

Instructions:

1. Slice the eggplant into1/2-inch-thick rounds. Generously brush both sides of each slice with oil. Place on a flat baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Slide under the broiler and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until the eggplant is tender and lightly browned.
2. Top each slice of eggplant with a tomato slice and sprinkle with fresh basil. Scatter the mozzarella cheese over the tomato and return to the broiler to melt the cheese. Serve immediately.
