Eggplant Parmesan

By The Editors

This is the most minimalist eggplant Parmesan imaginable, really an eggplant gratin with tomatoes. You cook the eggplant in abundant oil. Yes, you can broil it or bake it, but I really think the taste of eggplant slices that have had oil boiled right through them is dreamy.

Make a 15-minute tomato sauce of fresh or canned tomatoes, onion and olive oil, then grab a gratin dish and layer the eggplant, sauce and Parmesan. Do this two or three times, and that’s it. Bake until it’s bubbly and golden brown. It’s great hot or at room temperature, so it’s perfect for a potluck.
