Dried herbs and black pepper to your taste
Rinse eggplants under running water. Cut the vegetable into circles; make sure not to make them too thick. Put slices of eggplant into a deep bowl and sprinkle some salt all over them. Give eggplant slices a mix to cover them in slat evenly and leave aside for 10 minutes. It will help eggplant become softer and lose some juice.
Preheat oven at 350ºF/180°C.
Crush all the garlic cloves using a garlic press into a small deep bowl. Pour some boiling water over and stir the mixture. We need water to absorb the taste and aroma of the garlic.
Take a baking tray and cover with parchment paper. Smear some oil over and place all the eggplant slices (leave some space between them). Take a pastry brush, dip it into a bowl with pressed garlic, and coat every eggplant slice with the garlic mixture. Sprinkle some dried herbs over, too.
Divide all the grated cheese that you have into two parts. Layer out the first one evenly over the eggplant.
The next layer will be the slices of tomato.
Cover tomato slices with the rest of the grated cheese. Sprinkle some freshly ground black pepper.
Bake the eggplant appetizer for 25 minutes until eggplant cooks through and becomes soft. Let it cool down a bit and serve with sprinkled over chopped fresh herbs! Enjoy your meal!
