 Ingredients List

  • 1 lg Eggplant
  • Salt; to taste
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1 14 1/2oz can stewed
  • -tomatoes; drained
  • 1 md Onion; finely chopped
  • 1 Clove garlic; minced
  • 2 tb Parsley; finely chopped
  • 2 tb Basil; fresh, finely chopped
  • Black pepper; freshly ground
  • Balsamic vinegar; to taste


Cut eggplant into 1/2-inch slices; lightly salt slices, put them into a
colander and drain for 30 minutes. Dry the slices, removing any salt, then
lightly oil them. Meanwhile, prepare the grill.

When the fire is ready, add eggplant slices and grill 3 to 5 minutes on one

While the first side is grilling, combine tomatoes, onion, garlic, parsley,
basil, and pepper in a bowl; mix well. Turn over the eggplant slices on the
grill, then top each with a spoonful of the tomato mixture.

Put the grill cover down, and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer
the slices to a jellyroll pan. Add a few drops of vinegar to each slice,
then run the slices under the broiler for 2 or 3 minutes to crisp the
stuffing. Serve immediately.

NOTES : Farce means a stuffing, usually made of meat. In this case, the
"stuffing" is made with tomatoes, herbs, and spice, and is placed on top of
the eggplant slice. Eggplant is cooked through when a thin wooden skewer
goes through the flesh easily. Since this is a farce, the ingredients can
be changed easily. For example, oregano can be substituted for the basil.
