- 2 small eggplants
- 4 tomatoes
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 12 peeled garlic cloves
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Slice eggplants and tomatoes into 1/2-inch thick slices. Brush each side with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Put slices on nonstick cookie sheet. Bake in oven at 375 degrees F for approximately 20 minutes or until golden brown. Take peeled garlic cloves and put them in a saucepot or saute pan and cover them with olive oil. Cover pot/pan with a top or aluminum foil and simmer garlic cloves until they are tender. You can tell when they are tender when the tip of a chef's knife is easily inserted. Allow garlic cloves to cool and set aside. Place the roasted eggplant slices on a platter, top with the roasted tomato slices and garnish with poached garlic.
