Number of people approx.

8 eggplants

4 portions of fresh goat cheese (or sheep's cheese)

Olive oil for cooking (plan a good quantity)

Green salad

For the grout:

12 tomatoes


3 medium onions

1 clove of garlic



3 tablespoons of olive oil (about)

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons of sugar

Preparation: 1h30
Cooking time: 30 min
Step 1
Cut the aubergines into 1 cm slices.
Step 2
Prick them with a fork and place them in a dish and salt (make several layers by interspersing everything between the layers).
Step 3
Let it drain.
Step 4
Meanwhile dice the tomatoes and chop the basil and garlic.
Step 5
Place everything on medium heat in a non-stick skillet. Add a little salt and a spoonful of olive oil before covering.
Step 6
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes have returned to their water (remove any excess if necessary). Reserve.
Step 7
Cut your onions. Fry them in a frying pan with a base of olive oil. Once browned (about 10 min) add a teaspoon of sugar and stir over high heat. Reserve.
Step 8
Resume cooking the coulis uncovered and add the onions, a teaspoon of sugar and balsamic vinegar. Salt and pepper.
Step 9
Stir and simmer over low heat. Once the grout is well reduced (when it starts to hang) set aside.
Step 10
The cooking of aubergines:
Step 11
Fry them in a hot and generously oiled frying pan, about 3 min on each side (the flesh must soften and they must be lightly roasted). This is the most tedious part because you have to do several tours...
Step 12
Place each round between the towel to absorb the excess olive oil.
Step 13
The presentation:
Step 14
Arrange your aubergine slices in the shape of a sun on the plate. Place tomato coulis in the centre.
Step 15
On top put a portion of the fresh cheese on which you place a basil leaf.
Step 16
Between the aubergines, arrange the finely chopped salad leaves.
Step 17
Sprinkle lightly with a salad sauce (homemade of course).
Step 18
Wonderful, it's ready! Enjoy your meal!
Author's note
This recipe is not complicated to follow although it takes some time since all the products are fresh and requires to be simmered with love! And then... what a treat! For the quantities I tried to be as precise as possible but I always do it instinctively so trust yourself! You can offer it as a starter or main course according to the proportions you choose to serve.

I add my grain of salt
