aubergine surprise with artisan cheese
Ingredients for 4 people:
- 3 aubergines.
- 2 tomatoes.
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves of garlic.
- 2 potatoes
- 150 g. artisan cheese from Teruel
- 1 cup of tomato sauce.
- Extra virign olive oil from Lower Aragón.
Exquisite aubergine surprise.
Preparation:Peel and chop the potatoes and put them to cook in a saucepan with water and a pinch of salt.
While we cook the potatoes, wash the aubergines, cut 2 of them into slices and salt them. Add olive oil to frying pan and fry the slices of aubergine until they are moldable.
Finely chop the cloves of garlic and put the slices into the frying pan with olive oil to brown slightly. Then, finely chop the onion and add to the frying pan, browning it slightly.
Next, addthe other aubergine and the tomato (peeled and diced). Sauté the vegetables for 5 minutes.
Finely chop the basil leaves and add them to the tomato sauce, and heat it up slowly in a sacuepan.
To make the 'surprises' use a flat fish slice. Cover the fish slice with the slices of aubergine, letting the edges fall over the sides. Put two spoonfuls of the fried vegetable mix in the middle and put a slice of artisan cheese and a slice of potato on top.
When you have all the ingredients in place, close the 'surprise' with the edges of the aubergine. Repeat this method until you have finished all of the aubergine slices.
To accompany the surprises, use the tomato sauce and some grated artisan cheese to sprinkle on top.
