Eggplant bake

The eggplant takes the place of pasta sheets. As this is such a simple dish, it is crucial to use plenty of fresh herbs. Fresh goat's curd is an excellent substitute for sour cream.

  • 100ml olive oil
  • 1 medium brown onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 810g tin whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh oregano leaves
  • 2 medium eggplants, thinly sliced
  • 300g sour cream
  • 150g parmesan cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 180C. Preheat a grill or barbecue to hot. Place olive oil, onion and garlic in a saucepan. Season and cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and simmer, stirring to prevent catching, until sauce is thick. Stir through herbs and remove from heat. While sauce reduces, grill eggplant on both sides until cooked through. In a 25 centimetre by 20 centimetre baking dish, layer tomato sauce, eggplant, spoonfuls of sour cream and cheese. Repeat. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and bubbling. Serve with a green salad.

Main ingredient:
Tomato, Eggplant
