Hello everyone again! I am so excited today because I have bought a new cook book! We have been watching The Great British bake off programme lately and we are trying to get ourselves into baking. I always wanted a baking book with the step by step pictures (of course) and with recipes that go from the most simple and classic to the more complicated and innovative creations. So I found this book called Step-by-step baking (check it on Amazon clicking here) so soon we are going to be baking and updating the baking section of our blog!

Today’s recipe is another one for our brand new category on the menu ‘healthy eating‘. You all know how much I like aubergine, well this time I made this easy aubergine tower, with tomato, pesto and cheese…. yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 large aubergine
  • tomato
  • pesto (check recipe here)
  • goats cheese, or any cheese that melts.
  • salt
  • olive oil

Preparation

When we cook with aubergine we need to get rid of their bitterness. To do this, simply cut them in rounds (or whatever shape you need) sprinkle some salt on top and leave them for a few minutes until you can see a violet water coming out form them. Rinse them and the are ready to cook.

In a oven tray with some olive oil, place the round and cook them at 180ºC for 10 minutes. Put some pesto on top and the tomatoes -also cut in round- and cook it again for another 10 minutes. Put the cheese on top and cook it for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Once they are ready, just assemble the towers!!!!
