A simple recipe from the Puglia region of Southern Italy and even though I learned it from my mother-in-law, Maddalena, I had to add Feta and sun dried tomatoes so that it has some Greek flavor.

Preparation time: 5
Cooking time: 5

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 4


4 thick slices Italian-style bread
4 large garlic cloves, peeled and halved
4 slices of eggplant, grilled
3 cherry tomatoes halved
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Greek Feta cheese*
Florina or Bulgarian roasted peppers *
Fresh Basil chopped
Sun dried tomatoes chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Parsley, chopped

* Available at Nabeel's International Market


1. Grill bread lightly over hot charcoal grill, making sure both sides are equally toasted.
2. Remove bread from grill and quickly rub a large garlic clove over bread. (The garlic will melt over the bread).
3. Plate the bread and drizzle olive oil over the bread. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and oregano.
4. Put eggplant, roasted peppers, Feta, tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes and basil over each slice of the toasted/grilled bread.
5. Sprinkle with some chopped parsley and a little extra virgin olive oil.
