Start by slicing the eggplant about 1/4 in ch thick the long way
♥♥♥♥(it's heart healthy)♥♥♥♥
Preheat a grill pan or grill
When grill is good & hot, place the eggplant at an angle on the grill.
( I lost some of the pictures that I took of this somehow , I will try to describe the best that I can..)
*the top eggplant is the first angel that I used, then I turned it so that it is facing the direction that the bottom 2 are.
When you then flip it ( as I have, you will have these very pretty grill marks) *
When all of the eggplant are grilled, set them up like little soldiers to get ready to be filled.. (prettiest side down.. that will end up being the top)
I invite you to use your imagination...
I had about a cup of part-skim ricotta
1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
salt & pepper
crushed garlic cloves (crush with the side of a knife..) this insures that garlic flavor will be throughout the filling without anyone biting straight into a chunk of garlic..
Then, start assembling
Lay some fresh basil leaves a top of your eggplant
then top with sun-dried tomatoes.. ( I used a different brand than I normally do.. they are as pretty and red as I'm used to, but they still tasted good )
next, the imaginary cheese filling
bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes then top with a drizzle of olive oil & a drizzle of balsamic vinegar
I used the same idea as Caprese Towers
top with some shredded basil, a diced red onion, salt, Pepper, EVOO & balsamic vinegar...
on another note... is there something that you would like to have a recipe for? Something that you would like to see me make? I do have a lot of ideas on my own but I'm open to suggestions.... I love a challenge..
thanks for reading :)
