When life gives you lemons, you make kick-ass lemonade. In this case, I bought organic, locally grown eggplants and was given delicious tomatoes, so I made this yummy crustless eggplant pizza.
I love eggplants! I use them in sauces, for lasagna and many other dishes. Well, I find them similar in taste to mushrooms. When I add cream with sauteed eggplant and onions, it is just heavenly when you dip the bread.
My daughter has almost the same taste in food as me and she loves this. However, both of my boys don’t even want to come close to it.
The only way they’ll eat it is if I put marinara sauce instead of raw tomatoes and I cut the eggplant into thin slices lengthwise; then I bake it longer so eggplant could become a little bit crunchy
So, if you have a picky eater that don’t like tomatoes or eggplant that trick might work.
I love, love homegrown tomatoes. I said it before, but if they are cherry tomatoes I keep snacking on them all day long, and if they are the regular size I eat them like an apple.
It is so refreshing, sweet, juicy and yes huge difference compared to the store bought. Just when you smell them, that scent alone is so delicious to me
Mine just started to get red, and I picked few last weeks, but my neighbors are so amazing that they always share with us lots of their tomatoes, which I am using almost every day to cook some delicious meals if they are not sliced for the salad.
Anyhow, yeah, today we ended up with delicious eggplant pizza. I served it with whole grain French bread and Italian sausages on the side
This is really such a quick meal, even if you serve it without any type of meat it is satisfying. Be creative and like I said if you like marinara/pasta sauce use that instead of the tomatoes
