Eggplant rolls with tomato,garlic and herbs

Posted in: Recipes, Side dish, Vegetables
This entry is part 1 of 7 in the series Delicious fried veggies

This recipe was cooked by my Grandma and was her signature recipe. It’s very delicious and garlic with herbs adds the amazing flavor to the eggplant.

It’s easy to cook, fast and the ingredients may be found practically in every house.

For this recipe you’ll need:

1 eggplant

2-3 tomatoes (depending on size of eggplant and tomatoes)

½ cup of flour

Pepper, salt

2 cloves of garlic

3-4 tablespoons of olive, vegetable or sunflower oil

2 tablespoons of mayo

Dill, parsley, basil.

Wash your eggplant and tomatoes.

Slice the eggplant lengthways (the thinner the slices, the betterJ

Season each slice with salt and pepper and let it stay for 5-10 minutes.

Set the frying pan on medium heat, pour the cooking oil, coat each eggplant slice with flour and fry each slice until golden brown on each side and soft.

Remove the fried eggplant on the paper towel so that the oil would drain.

Slice the tomato and then cut the slices in halves (they should look like little timbersJ.Peel your garlic.

Crush the garlic with the garlic press.

Wash and cut your herbs.  (I normally use dill or parsley)

Mix the crushed garlic, herbs, and mayo. Add some salt and pepper to the sauce.

Take the eggplant slice, cover it with mayo sauce and add one or two of your cut tomato ‘timber”:-)

Roll everything up!

Repeat with all the eggplant slices.


****Tip from Helen**** sometimes I cut the very wide eggplant slices in halves, thus the rolls are smaller and more neat if you want to serve at the dinner party ****Tip from Helen****

    What a creative way to use eggplant! I love Chinese spring rolls, and this looks like it’s similar, but healthier. Yum!

    I had some eggplant that I HAD to use last night. I just threw it together in a “strata” with some zucchini and fresh tomatoes. I wish I would have seen this first!

    Once you again you prove that I love every eggplant roulette that I’ve met. Love the freshness of the veggies stuffed inside. Eggplant is an excellent recipient for gourmet salts like a smoked chardonnay salt. :-)

      You cut the eggplants into thin thin slices and wrap the tomato in eggplant. If you need video instruction I can post one.
      Thank you for your question!
