 slice 1/4 inch slides, dredge in egg wash and roll in italian breadcrumbs w/ parmesean cheese added. Bake at 400 degrees four to six minutes on each side. Serve as a side or with marinara sauce and spaghetti noodles for a main dish.

roast in the oven or on the grill. or even microwave till tender. scrape the pulp out and put in blender with sesame seeds and a bit of olive oil or tahini if you have it( sesame seeds ground into a paste). a little lemon juice salt and garlic. puree till a paste and serve with olive oil and pita bread or chips. just like hummus. baba ghamoush.

This eggplant soup is absolutely delicious!  Every time I find a good price on eggplant, I just have to make it.  Also, it's pretty easy to make.

Eggplant Stacker

Cut Eggplant into 1/4 inch slices, brush both sides of each slice with olive oil, bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 7-8 minutes each side. Reduce oven heat ro 350 degrees. Place a slice in a 10 oz ramekin lined with parchment paper. Top with 2 tbs. marinara sauce and 2 tbs mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers two times. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is melted.
