  • Summary

    This is an eggplant Parmesan of sorts on top of a bed of Israeli couscous. If you’ve made fresh tomato sauce over the summer or you’re still getting wonderful tomatoes at the farmers’ market, use fresh tomato sauce; otherwise, use canned tomatoes for your marinara sauce. You can substitute cooked grains for the Israeli couscous; if you don’t tolerate gluten, try the recipe using cooked brown rice instead. I like to use Japanese or baby Italian eggplants for this. Featured in: Couscous Salads, Big Bowls And Casseroles. 

    Ingredients

    • 1 ½ pounds eggplant (2 medium globe eggplants or 4 to 6 smaller or Japanese eggplants), sliced into rounds, about 1/3 inch thick
    • Salt to taste
    • 3 tablespoons extra- virgin olive oil (plus additional for oiling the foil and baking dish)
    • 2 cups cooked Israeli couscous (see below). You can also use regular couscous or any other cooked grain.
    • 2 cups fresh tomato sauce or marinara sauce made from canned tomatoes
    • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (1/2 cup, tightly packed)
    • Torn or slivered basil leaves for garnish
