Roasted Eggplant Fan

Roasted Eggplant Fan

Here is a delicious eggplant recipe in the shape of an eye-catching fan. It's tasty, simple and fast. I really like this season full of vegetables. Eggplants are our favorites and with each new meal, I am more convinced of that.

This eggplant fan is very quick to make. In about 15 minutes, it's already prepared for baking, in 40, it's ready to be served. You can slip in a slice of bacon or ham. I made it simple, with cheese and tomatoes only.


3 pieces
choose not very big eggplants or you'll end up with a giant fan :)
5 pieces
Yellow cheese
400 g
or Mozzarella
Olive oil
50 ml
or any oil you like and have
Garlic cloves
4 pieces
1 tsp
+ optional 1 teaspoon Herbs of Provence

Step by step

Step 1

Wash the eggplants and cut into slices about 6-7 mm thick, making sure each slice is still attached to the stem.

Step 4

Brush each slice of eggplant with this mixture. Arrange the eggplant fans on a baking sheet greased with oil.

I filled them straight in the sheet, so that I wouldn't have to transfer them later.

Step 5

Cut the tomatoes into thin slices and insert 2-3 in between the eggplant slices. I alternated the tomatoes with the cheese.

Step 6

Here you can see how I did it: on one slice of eggplant I put tomatoes, on the other, cheese (also thinly sliced).

Optionally, you can have sliced ham or bacon, too.

When you filled them, arrange their fan shape.

Sprinkle with oil. I saved some garlic and oil mixture and brushed the eggplant on top.

Bake in the preheated oven at 200 degrees C for 40-45 minutes, or until nicely browned.

Once they are done, remove from the oven. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes, then you can serve.
