Crostini con Melanzane Grigliate e Pecorino – A Traditional Italian Recipe
Eggplant and Pecorino Cheese Crostini
Fresh Italian appetiser, snack, or side dish. Bruschetta with eggplant that is low in carbohydrates.
Ingredients (serves 6-8)
• 2 eggplants
• 6-8 slices of Italian or French bread, about ½ in
• 1 cup coarsely grated medium aged pecorino
cheese (or parmesan)
• extra-virgin olive oil
Slice the eggplant fairly thinly and grill in an iron pan until both sides are brown (about 5 minutes on each). Place grilled eggplant slices into a dish and season with the extra virgin olive oil. Toast the sliced bread on a grill or toaster oven. Once done, drizzle the bread with olive oil, add the eggplant slices and the pecorino, then place in a hot oven so that the cheese melts. Serve immediately and enjoy! You can also use a non-stick pan”: the most important thing is to not use any oil.
