This is one of my favorite light meal, especially during summer when fresh produce abounds!
- First, you'll need a fresh eggplant. Slice it about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch. Put the slices in a baking dish. Gently brush the slices with a little olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill at 425F for a couple of minutes on each side.
- Make little towers using one slice eggplant, a basil leave or some pesto, a tomato slice, some feta cheese, repeat another time, and finish with an eggplant slice.
- Put the towers back on the baking dish and heat in the oven until hot... Serve hot or warm!
Nutritions facts for about 3 towers: 265 calories, 19 g fat, 5 g saturated, 11 g monounsaturated, 3 g polyunsaturated, 17 g carbohydrate, 8 g protein, 7 g fiber. My comment: Delightful!!! This vegetarian entree contains lots of vegetables with healthy fats from olive oil and even a little calcium from the cheese. Mmmmmmmm!
Well, what are you waiting for?
