Eggplant Bruschetta

Pin It
Before Chris and I met, the only things on his cooking repertoire were his infamous pasta salad, tuna melts and grilled chicken. Fast forward four years, and he's making this eggplant bruschetta one night when I was at my kickboxing class. This is just one example of how far he has come in the kitchen. He loves being adventurous and trying new things (dare I say even more than I do!) so I'm always excited to try the new recipes he comes up with.

This bruschetta was refreshing and healthy. It would be a perfect side dish to grilled chicken or a piece of steak. I'd even consider popping these babies on the grill next time to get a little char and add some of that smoky flavor. Either way, these are a great summer side dish and will help keep your waistline in check. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1 large eggplant
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder, or more to taste
  • 2 tsp. Italian seasoning, or more to taste
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Slice the eggplant into 1/2-inch pieces.

Arrange the eggplant pieces on a baking sheet. Coat each piece with olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Sprinkle with garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Pile each eggplant slice with a spoonful of tomato pieces. Top with a generous amount of Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until eggplant is tender and cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
