Oven Baked Eggplants with Feta Cheese

I love Eggplants, and since this recipe is a favorite of mine, I wanted to share it with you.   For everyone who loves Eggplants, this is a delicious and simple dish! 🙂 

Portions:  6



Ingredients:

6  Eggplants 

500 grams of Feta Cheese

 

Sauce

5 Fresh Tomatoes (diced)

1 teaspoon of Tomato Paste

2 cloves of Garlic (chopped)

1/2 cup of chopped Basil

1 teaspoon of Oregano

1/2 cup of Olive Oil

1 teaspoon Sugar

Salt

Pepper

Paprika

1 cup water

Preparation:

Wash Eggplants with water, and then cut into circular pieces.  In a large bowl filled with water and 1 teaspoon of salt, add in the Eggplants and let them sit for about 1/2 hour.  

In the meantime start the sauce, by adding into a large sauce pan a few dashes of Olive Oil. Toss in the diced Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil, Sugar, Salt, Pepper, Paprika, Oregano, Tomato Paste and 1 cup of water. Let the sauce boil on low heat until thickened.

Drain the Eggplants, and wash thoroughly, then take a piece of  Cooking paper or Aluminum foil, brush with a bit of Olive Oil before adding the Eggplants.  The Eggplants should be about 1 inch apart from each other.  Sprinkle Olive Oil over the Eggplants, and then pop them into the oven for about 15 minutes, turn them over at least one time.

Tip:  You can also fry the Eggplants, instead of baking them if you prefer.

 

Take the baking pan and a bit of sauce on the bottom and some Feta cheese.  Add on a layer of Eggplants, then sauce and top with Feta cheese.  Continue layering until all your ingredients have finished.  Finish off by adding in the 1/2 cup of Olive oil and pop into the oven,
