Aubergine/eggplant snack or starter, no oil

Recommended Posts

The slot this was meant to fill is "nice snack, much lower calories than bread, noodles or pasta" and yes it's vegetarian.

Aubergine Scallopine (basically from Barbara Kafka, recommended)

3 oz (85 gm) Aubergine/eggplant - 2 slices each 0.5 in (1 cm) thick and 4 in (10 cm) across.

2 Tblsp (30gm) ricotta cheese (any medium or low fat soft cheese)

8 leaves fresh basil

4 oz / 0.5 cup / 80 ml fresh tomato puree or passata or concentrated paste

2 oz (50 gm) grated cheese, eg mozzarella

Place slices in one layer in a shallow dish, spread soft cheese, add basil

and cover with the puree, scatter grated cheese on top.

Cover tightly with cling film and microwave for 5 minutes (650 watt oven),

prick to release steam and rest for 1 minute. ==

Serve hot, cold or in sandwiches.

The non-measured version is

Cut some Aubergine/eggplant slices, spread with whatever seems appropriate

maybe pizza sauce and/or slices of a contrasting vegetable, sprinkle with herbs

and microwave covered for 2 minutes per 100 grams/ 4 oz plus 2 minutes. Serve hot or cold.

(Aubergine, not fried in oil, is 15 Kcal per 100g/ 4 oz)
