Category: Italian, Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Eggplants, unpeeled, sliced
  • -1/2-inch thick
  • 4 Eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 To 1 cup flour
  • Soybean oil for frying
  • 1 lb Mozzarella cheese, thinly
  • -sliced
  • 4 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 28 oz Whole tomatoes (1 can)
  • 2 tb Chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground
  • -black pepper
  • 1 Bay leaf



Grated Parmesan cheese (Optional)

Dip the eggplant slices in the egg, then in the flour. Pour enough soybean
oil into a large frying pan to come an inch up the side. Fry the eggplant
slices for about 3 minutes on each side. Drain.

In an 8-by-12-inch oven-proof glass pan, place a layer of fried eggplant,
then a layer of mozzarella cheese. Repeat layering two more times so that
there are three layers of eggplant and three of mozzarella. Bake for about
5 minutes in a 500-degree oven.

To make the sauce, saute the garlic in the olive oil. When it starts to
turn golden, add the tomatoes with their juice. Break each tomato in half
with a knife. Bring to a boil. Add the parsley, a pinch of salt, pepper to
taste, and the bay leaf. Let boil for another 2 minutes. Remove from the
heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Slice the baked eggplant into squares. Place on plates and top with ladles
of the sauce. Top with grated Parmesan, if desired.

Makes 8 servings.
