Actually, this is not really a recipe, and it’s not even my idea, I just can’t remember where I saw it first. But I wanted to share this delicious creation with you anyway.
I’ve been craving eggplants lately, probably due to a certain beautiful curry recipe. 😉
This cute side dish is very versatile. You can add all of your favorite toppings, and you could even use zucchini as the base instead of eggplant.
Eggplant Pizza Minis
- 1 medium eggplant
- tomato sauce or ajvar (I used the latter)
- a few fresh basil leaves, cut into thin stripes
- salt and pepper
- veggie deli slices, optional
- nutritional yeast or cheese
Cut the eggplant into slices, about 1/2 inch thick. Heat a large frying pan to medium-high heat. Pour a little oil into the pan and fry the eggplant slices on both sides for a few minutes until they are soft and slightly browned. Sprinkle on some salt and pepper.
Place the eggplant slices on a plate and top them with sauce, basil, and nutritional yeast. Add some extra toppings, if you like, and put the plate under a broiler, if you like your pizza minis extra hot.
Wednesday night I ate the whole batch with my dinner, so I’d say the recipe yields one serving. What can I say, I love vegetables. 🙂
Have a great weekend!
