Serves 4 - 6

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sized eggplants
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 large onions (red or brown), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 400 g can chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 tsp each of salt & ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan

Method

• Preheat the oven to 180°C. Trim any stalks off the eggplants, then, using a small knife or potato peeler, peel off strips of the skin lengthways, leaving alternate strips of skin and exposed flesh.

Sprinkle with salt and set aside. Heat 1⁄4 cup of the oil in a pan and fry each of the eggplants, turning so they brown on all sides. Remove from the pan and set aside.

• Heat the remaining 1/4 cup of the olive oil in the pan, to a medium

heat. Add the sliced onions and cook gently for 10 minutes until soft

and translucent. Add the garlic, cook for a further 2 minutes, then add tomatoes, parsley, salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, until it

reduces and deepens in colour – about 10 minutes.

• Pack the eggplants into an oven proof dish so they fit snugly. Cut

a slit in each eggplant, (not all the way through though) and spoon

some of the onion and tomato sauce inside each cavity. Spoon the remaining tomato mixture on top.

• Mix the sugar, lemon juice and water and pour this around the

eggplants until it almost covers them. Cover the dish with a lid or

double layer of foil and bake for 45 minutes or until the eggplants are tender, even collapsing.

• Remove the lid or foil, add grated parmesan and bake for 10-15

minutes more until the juices are reduced and syrupy and the top is golden.

• Serve warm or at room temperature, either as a side to roast meat,

or as a vegetarian main dish on its own.
