Servings 2 persons


  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 big tomato or 2 medium sized ones
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • basil a handful
  • 1 egg
  • breadcrumbs
  • chester cheese
  • cherry tomatoes
  • grated cheese
  • black olives
  • mozzarella


  • Cut the eggplant into fine pieces, and steam them for 10 minutes.
  • Chop the shallot and the garlic.
  • Mix the eggplant, pine nuts, basil, shallot and garlic in the kitchen machine.
  • Add the egg and some breadcrumbs until you have a consistent dough. Like for patties.
  • Slice the tomatoes, and put them as a bottom layer on the tray.
  • Spread the eggplant dough over it, and finish with tomato slices on top.
  • Finish with grated cheese, chester cheese, halved cherry tomatoes, halved olives and mozzarella.
  • Bake for 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 180°C.


I prefer steaming the eggplants, because they keep their taste better. If you cook them, some taste will be lost to the cooking water.
