MAKING

2. In a pan, heat olive oil, add onion and garlic and cook until the onions turn translucent. Add tomatoes and the seasoning, stir to mix and allow to simmer.

3. Using a paper towel, blot both sides of the eggplant slices. In a bowl break in the eggs and whisk. Dip each eggplant slice first in egg and then in the flour, place on the baking tray.
