Involtini! Posted by Picasa

This is amazingly easy to do and we love it in this household, as eggplant happens to be one of our favourite vegetables. As a matter of fact, it is probably in our top 5 of vegetables. I just can't understand people who say they hate it.. Obviously their parents never knew how to cook it properly..
Anyways! Take your eggplant and slice it horizontally, placing the slices in salted water afterwards, to get rid of the bitterness. Fry the eggplant slices in oil until they are soft and juicy. Make a stuffing (I used leek, egg and feta cheese, you can improvise if you want, although the cheese is instrumental. If you're using leek, you might want to saute it in the pan a little bit, so it doesn't come out stringy). Place about a tablespoon of stuffing on each slice of eggplant and roll it up. Put the rolls in a baking tray (as in the pic above) and pour a can of tomato sauce over them. Season with salt, pepper and oregano and give it a little bake in the oven for 15 to to 20 minutes.
