Eggplant Mini Pizza, the perfect finger food!

Eggplant Mini Pizza, the perfect finger food!

By 10/06/2013

Over the weekend I bought a few eggplant to make a pasta sauce which I do every week. My children seem to enjoy pasta with eggplant; this is a very versatile vegetable, you can prepare itΒ  in so many different ways and it can be very tasty indeed.

As I had a couple left over I made these eggplant mini pizzas which were really tasty! They made a nice starter before our main pasta dish.

They can also make a perfect finger food for a dinner party or they can be enjoyed as an healthy snack at any time of the day.

 

  • Prep Time : 20 minutes
  • Cook Time : 8 minutes

Instructions

Wash and chop the eggplant ends and slice them half centimeter thick

Decorate with a basil leaf and serve warm!

As I am using basil and oregano for this recipe I am entering it into Karen’s β€˜Herbs on Saturday’ challenge.
