Total Time:35 min

Prep:10 min

Cook:25 min

8 servings



3 Medium eggplants, to yield about 3 pounds, stem removed, sliced lengthwise, into 1/2-inch slices

1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil

4 Cloves garlic, thinly sliced

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

I Bunch Italian parsley, finely chopped to yield 1/4 cup


Preheat the oven to 500 F. Place eggplant slices in a single layer on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Brush each slice with the olive oil. Stud each slice of eggplant with the sliced garlic, embedding the garlic as much as possible into the flesh of the eggplant. Season with salt and pepper and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until soft and golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool. When cool, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
