Eggplant Appetizer with Tomato and Garlic

This appetizer is one of the oldest in our family, not missing on any festive meal in the eggplant season, especially. It is very "hunted" on the table, I noticed a tendency to empty the plates faster with this dish.

And of course it's banally simple ... now I don't even have time for something more sophisticated to cook, but I don't even think it's the case in a family meal.

Eggplants traditionally (I've been cooking the recipe for about 15 years), I used to fry them in oil, I've been grilling them for about a year and it's just as delicious, but healthier. Same with the filling, it can be made only with mayonnaise, I now make it with cream cheese and put only 1-2 tablespoons of mayonnaise for a more interesting taste.


2 pieces
3 pieces
Cream Cheese
4 tbsp
2 tbsp
Garlic cloves
2 pieces
0.5 tsp
Sunflower oil
2 tbsp

Step by step


Eggplants and cut into slices (round and / or long), about 5mm thick, grease with a brush with a little oil.

Bake on both sides.


In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese with mayonnaise, crushed garlic and salt to taste.


For the tomatoes, carefully cut the back and slice them as thin as possible.


Now I show you the traditional way of assembly:

- take a slice of eggplant, from that long one, put a little cream cheese on one side, cover with a slice of tomato


Cover with the other side of the eggplant slice.


But I like to make it a little simpler, cut and bake the eggplant slices, put the cream cheese and garlic.


And the slice of tomato on top. It's faster and easier to work with.

Now each with his skill and preferences :)


Arrange them on a plate, garnish with greens and serve.

They can be kept in the refrigerator for a few hours, and even until the 2nd day.

Good appetite!
