Ingredients

Aubergines Patties
  • 1 large Aubergine
  • 1 cup Tomato sauce
  • 1 Mozzarella cheese or Vegan cheese
  • 3 slices Old bread
  • ½ cup Cornflour
  • 2 tsp Herbs (oregano, basil, thyme)
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper

HOW TO MAKE STUFFED AUBERGINE PATTIES

  1. Cut the aubergines in round slices about 1 cm thick, place them on a plate with a sprinkle of salt and cook in the microwave for 3 min at maximum heat. Or alternatively, place the slice in a colander, add salt, cover, and apply weight on top for 2 hours. This process will help take out the bitter juice from aubergines.
  2. Crumble the bread in a mixer, in a cup aside whisk the cornflour with water until it becomes a smooth mix.
  3. Rinse the aubergines, spread on each slice a spoon of tomato sauce, some herbs and place a piece of mozzarella on half of the slices.
  4. Make a mini aubergine-sandwich pairing up the slices, each one should be filled with a piece of mozzarella.
  5. Dip each aubergine-sandwich in the cornflour mix, then pass them into the crumbled bread and place them in a baking tray.
  6. Add some oil and cook in the oven at 200ºC for 25-30 minutes.
