  • 3 medium eggplants - (abt 3 lbs) stem removed, sliced lengthwise into 1/2" slices
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves thinly sliced
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Freshly-ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup finely-chopped Italian parsley


Servings 8


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.

Place eggplant slices in a single layer on a lightly-oiled baking sheet. Brush each slice with the olive oil. Stud each slice of eggplant with the sliced garlic, embedding the garlic as much as possible into the flesh of the eggplant.

Season with salt and pepper and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until soft and golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool. When cool, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
