Food: eggplant feta bake

I love Mediterranean food and this simple dish of fried eggplant, baked in the oven with tomato sauce and crumbly feta cheese is great!  My method of cooking this is to fry the eggplant slices in olive oil until they are soft and golden.

I arrange them in a baking dish while I saute onion and garlic with a can of chopped tomatoes and shredded basil for about five minutes, until the onion is soft. Pour the tomato sauce evenly over the eggplant slices, crumble feta cheese over the top and bake in a medium oven for approx. 25 – 30 minutes.

It’s a very easy meal to make and there are a bunch of different recipes for it on the web so if you’d prefer a different recipe, try searching for “eggplant feta bake” and you’ll find a few different variations.  Enjoy!

    • It’s really great because it’s so simple.

      Also, I forgot to mention a handy tip: when cooking with eggplants, it’s a good idea to slice them, sprinkle salt over them and then leave them for about 20 minutes. This removes any bitter flavors. Rinse the slices before cooking.

      Hope you enjoy the recipe.
