EGGPLANT FAN, ROUMANIAN, VINETE IMPANATE CU LEGUME
The first time I found this recipe was in a roumanian blog and I look around and around to find in english. When I told my neighbor how is the recipe, she immediately told me to look for EGGPLANT FAN…. so this is how I get many, many variants of my roumanian recipe.
This is my recipe, a combination of many recipes I found and it is suit me fine!!!
This is a very good utube video for directions:
1 sweet pepper
1 eggplant medium
1 sweet onion
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
i cup marinara sauce of your choice.
I am adding ground meat, one pound. (optional)
I pealed eggplant, cut half on long side. I cut each half as a fan. Make deep, thin slices carefully not reaching the head of eggplant.
I cut thin slice of onion, tomato and sweet pepper.
I put some ground meat in-between eggplant slices, before I add cheese.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
I add shredded mozzarella and I noticed, in oven, mozzarella will become the glue which keep all together.
Add marinara sauce and cover with foil.
Bake covered, 350F for and hour.
My neighbor who is italian sauté the ground meat on pan, discard the oil and add on top of eggplant , adding cheese on top.
