Ingredients

  • 1 large or 2 small eggplants
  • 1-2 Tbsp oil
  • ½ x 350 g bag Wattie's Frozen Free-Flow Spinach
  • 400 g can Wattie's Chopped Tomatoes with Roasted Garlic and Onion
  • 1-2 cups grated Edam cheese
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs, fresh or dried
  • ¼ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Method

1. Cut 1/2 -1 cm circles of eggplant and place on a lined baking tray. Brush with oil and place under the grill. When the eggplant has browned turn and repeat. Remove from the oven and turn the oven to the bake function, 180°C.

2. Layer half of the eggplant slices over the base of a 2 litre ovenproof dish. Scatter the Wattie’s frozen Free-flow Spinach over and pour over the Wattie’s Tomatoes with Roasted Garlic and Onion. Sprinkle over half of the cheese and top with the remaining eggplant slices. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs, remaining cheese and Parmesan cheese.

3. Bake for 30-35 minutes and serve as a light lunch or as a vegetable side dish.

Tips

When eggplants are out of season use sliced courgettes.

This was really yummy. I used fresh Silverbeet instead of the spinach.

Awesome recipe!! I add in 500g of cooked chicken and some cooked mushrooms - must be drained otherwise there will be too much moisture. Sprinkle dry French onion soup over the middle layer to thicken a little when cooking. This can be served as a main dish.

YUM!!! This is the first 'new' dish that I've made in a long time that has gone down well with both me & my husband. As recommended by another reviewer I added 2 sliced chicken breasts to make it a 'meal' and my supermarket didn't have the specified tomato paste so I used 1x 140gm pottle of a similar blend but different brand. Will definitely make this again!

I too added a few bits extra, some Xmas ham, mushrooms, capiscums. Looks great.
