  • Summary

    This is the most minimalist eggplant Parmesan imaginable, really an eggplant gratin with tomatoes. You cook the eggplant in abundant oil. Yes, you can broil it or bake it, but I really think the taste of eggplant slices that have had oil boiled right through them is dreamy. Make a 15-minute tomato sauce of fresh or canned tomatoes, onion and olive oil, then grab a gratin dish and layer the eggplant, sauce and Parmesan. Do this two or three times, and that's it. Bake until it's bubbly and gold...

    Ingredients

    • Olive oil as needed
    • 2 pounds eggplant, preferably small ones but in any case, firm
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 2 pounds fresh plum tomatoes or one 28-ounce can, chopped
    • Parmesan cheese, grated
    • Chopped parsley for garnish, optional
