Foody Thursday - Eggplant Towers

Real Estate Sales Representative with Sutton Group Summit

Excellent appetizer, could be prepared in advance and refrigerated or served right away.

Eggplant towers

1. Cut eggplants into circles, add salt and set aside for 30 min, grill or fry in oil. Transfer into marinade

2. Marinade: 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, 1 tbsp honey. Set aside for a couple hours

3. Built your towers by alternating the circles of eggplant, tomatoes and mozarella. Decorate with fresh basilic. I had no basilic on hand - so parsley it is!

4. Add salt, pepper and some left over marinade

5. Enjoy!

Good morning Marina,

This is a definite try before the fresh tomatoes are gone!

I had to look up holubtsi last night that you have on your list as the local Ukrainian Culture Center is having a perogy and fish fry fundraiser and I did not know what it was.

Make yourself a great day.
