Eggplant Steaks with Freshness

Every week I go visit my happy place; Haymarket.  The fresh veggies and fruits, mixed with the end of the week, just make it my favorite place to be.  I never know what I may bring home or what new thing I will try.  This week I brought home a beautiful eggplant and with my basil plant blossoming and having fresh tomatoes in the fridge I knew I would go back to my Italian roots for dinner. Eggplant steaks are great as a vegan or vegetarian recipe!

Ingredients:

  • eggplant
  • tomatoes
  • fresh basil
  • balsamic glaze/ reduction
  • garlic, salt and pepper

How to:

  1. Begin by peeling the eggplant.  Then slice into 1 cm thick rounds.
  2. Spray a baking sheet then layer on the eggplant and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic.
  3. Bake in an 350 oven for 30-40 minutes, flipping over in between until tender.
  4. Then layer on the fresh tomatoes, basil, and the reduction.
  5. Its filling and easy way to have a great meal!  Not to mention gluten free, vegan, and healthy!
