This has a long cooking time, but is definitely worth the wait.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 large tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup olive oil, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 large eggplant
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup roasted almonds

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. 2 Arrange tomatoes, cut-side up, on a baking sheet. Whisk 1/4 cup olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; spoon over tomatoes.
  3. 3 Bake tomatoes in the preheated oven until slightly shrunken, 3 to 4 hours.
  4. 4 In the last hour of the tomatoes baking, thinly slice eggplant and sprinkle with salt; set aside until some of the water starts to bead on the slices, about 30 minutes. Rinse the salt off the eggplant and transfer to a bowl. Pour remaining 1/4 cup olive oil and sprinkle paprika over eggplant slices; toss with your hands to coat.
  5. 5 Arrange eggplant slices in a single layer in a skillet over medium heat; cook until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. 6 Alternate tomato slices and eggplant slices on serving plates creating 'towers.' Drizzle yogurt and honey over each 'tower'; top with almonds.

Reviews

  1. I like the idea of this recipe but the yogurt honey and almonds didn't really work for me. A little ricotta a chiffonade of fresh basil and some pignoli (pine nuts) would have been better.
