Ingredients

  • 6 Japanese Eggplants (Or any eggplants with same structure and texture)
  • 1/2 cup Sundried Tomatoes (julienned)
  • 1 Onion (finely chopped)
  • 4 cloves Garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Oregano (dry)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Marjoram (dry)
  • Parsley (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 4 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Optional

  • 1 cup Mushrooms (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

Directions

Step 1
Preheat conventional oven to 425 degrees.
Step 2
Cut the japanese eggplants crosswise into round, 1/2 inch slices.
Step 3

Spray a shallow baking pan with cooking oil spray. Or spread a tablespoon of olive oil evenly in the pan.

Step 4

Arrange the eggplant slices in the pan in a singe layer. Spray on top with cooking oil spray. Or sprinkle a tablespoon of olive oil on the slices, and spread the oil evenly.

Step 5

Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until eggplant is golden brown, and very soft when pressed.

Step 6

Meanwhile, if the sun-dried tomatoes are dry and not soft, soak them in boiling water for about 15 minutes, or until soft. Drain thoroughly, and finely chop them.

Step 7

Place a medium or large fry pan over medium heat. Add 2 tablespoons of oil. Add onions. Cook for 2 minutes, or until soft.

Step 8

Add the garlic, mushroom, tomatoes and bell peppers. Add the spices. Add 1 teaspoon salt. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, or until mushrooms are lightly browned, but the mixture should still be moist. Turn the heat to low or simmer.
