You can prepare this recipe in the oven or on the barbecue (it’s in season). The eggplants are excellent cooked like this. I must admit that MY favorite recipe for eggplants is this one: eggplants with white sauce and pomegranate (click) but it’s very personal.

For 4 persons :

  • 2 large eggplants (or 4 small ones)
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of herbes de Provence
  • 1 teaspoon dried tomatoes (or in oil)
  • 1 knife tip of dried chilli pepper or Espelette chilli pepper
  • 1 shallot

Preheat the furnace to 180°C.

In a bowl mix the olive oil, salt, pressed garlic, shallot, chopped dried tomatoes and Provencal herbs.  Set aside.

Wash the eggplants, split them in half. With a good knife, cut the flesh of the eggplants (not the skin).  Make 3 parallel rows on one side and 3 on the other side perpendicularly.

Place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or in a casserole dish. Brush the incised sides with the olive oil mixture previously made.
