Eggplant, Pizza, Heaven

Chef Linda Weiss

Photographs by Anne K Moore

Here we are at the end of summer and eggplant is still out there growing like the kudzu on Hwy 69 in southwest Alabama.  You can eat the kudzu too, by the way,but I think I’ll pass and go for the eggplant which I really, really love.

One of the many ways that I love eggplant is layered with pizza sauce, black olives, feta and a hint of Greek oregano. Made in a single layer, this dish is easy to prepare and has a short cooking time. Hmm, good for a Saturday lunch when you’re working in the garden, or if you feel like a vegetarian pizza for brunch on Sunday then that’s a good time to have it too. Have fun, eat!

Greek Eggplant Pitsa

1 medium eggplant, unpeeled

Olive oil

1- 3/4 cups pizza sauce (use your favorite)

3/4 cup finely chopped green onions

2 garlic cloves finely chopped

1 teaspoon dried Greek oregano

3/4 cup sliced and pitted Kalamata olives

1- 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1- 1/2 cups feta cheese, sliced or crumbled

Slice the eggplant very thin crosswise into ¼-inch slices. Brush both sides with olive oil. Place the slices of eggplant on a 15 x 10-inch (non-stick is good) baking pan making sure that slices slightly overlap. Mix the pizza sauce, garlic and the oregano and spread it evenly over the eggplant slices.  Sprinkle with the mozzarella and feta cheeses. Top with black olives and onions. Bake in a 350º preheated oven for about 20 minutes or until eggplant is tender and cheese is bubbly.

Serves 6-8.

GARDENING FOR HUMMINGBIRDS
GardenSMART Featured Article

By Lisa Bartlett, Garden Manager, Smith-Gilbert Gardens

Hummingbirds are among the few birds capable of inspiring equal fascination among birders and non-birders alike. No other bird looks like them or flies like them. These charismatic and fearless tiny birds have captured the imagination of people around the world. Is it any wonder then, that there are whole gardens created around attracting and keeping hummingbirds coming back year after year?
