This is a very tasty and simple way to eat aubergines. Very nice too on a crostini. If you have leftovers you can put them in a blender and make a tasty paste. I first tasted it from my girlfriends mother. The olive oil can make a big difference so use your best

Cut the aubergines lengthwise about 2 cm width. Finely chop the basil and garlic and add in a pestle.

Put a bit of olive oil at the bottom of a (preferably non-stick) roasting tray and on top the aubergine slices. Don't let the overlap one another. Bake for 40-50 min, they will become quite soft. They must be cooked very well.

Crush the garlic and basil with a little salt and pepper.
Fill with 4-5 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and let it suck the fragrances of the basil and garlic.

When the aubergines are ready, let them rest for 5 min. and put them in a big bowl. Add the fragrant oil with some more salt and pepper and mix carefully not to mash the aubergines. Oh the fragrances of the garlic, basil and olive oil are sooo nice!!!

Serving, arrange in a plate and add some parsley on top of each slice.
Molto bene or in Greek Pol'y or'e-a or something like that it should sound smile

fantastic recipe ! i like the way that you bake the aubergine in the oven and don't fry them...i find them too greasy that way.

Thx for the comments!

I hate too fried aubergines, they are quite tasty but toooo greasy!!

I think it's more of a mediterranean recipe I think, basil, olive oil, garlic,  aubergines...I'm not an expert though smile

Po-lee(molto)   or-'e-a(bene)
where the 'e' is like the 'e' in tell, and the 'a' like the 'a' in accent.
If I knew italian there might be sound closer than english...

I'm not a very good teacher...sad
