Eggplant is very much in season at the moment but sometimes it is hard to know how to cook an eggplant. Here is our easy recipe for eggplant steaks – a wonderful replacement for a dish with meat, these are filling and perfect served with your favourite salad.
1 x eggplant
¼ cup butter
1 cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup cheese
¼ tsp paprika
½ tsp crushed garlic
½ tsp Italian seasoning
Wash eggplant and slice in to 2 cm discs. Place in colander and sprinkle with salt, leave for at least an hour.
Melt butter and mix in crushed garlic and in a separate bowl mix together breadcrumbs, cheese and spices
Dip the eggplant slices in to butter then breadcrumb mix and put on a lined baking tray.
Bake at 200 degrees for 15 mins before flipping over and baking for a further 7 mins.
Serve with tzatziki or our couscous salad recipe and enjoy!
We prefer to make our own breadcrumbs with wholegrain bread, but this is up to you.
If you’re not a fan of paprika, substitute for your preferred spices
