It’s been a week since my last post but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working.

I’ve got some really interesting and delicious recipes coming up so stay tuned.

Also, as you might notice, my website’s been to a major transition and I do hope you like this new image. Well, there’s still quite a lot of work to be done, but step by step, right?

Did I say Eggplant Friday 🙂 As you already see this is to do with the recipe I’m sharing with you today. I might be a bit obsessed with these Mini Pizzas 🙂

So let’s focus on the recipe of the day – Eggplant or Aubergine, if you prefer Mini Pizzas. I topped them up with sun-dried tomatoes, which I love, Parmesan cheese and then a quail egg on top.

To be honest, I wasn’t really planning to use quail eggs but they were kind of sitting in front of me and asking to be used 🙂 And not only they are healthier than regular eggs but they’ve got in times more nutrients than chicken eggs. So these Eggplant Pizzas are kind of like Super Food Pizzas 🙂

The whole recipe was like one of those ‘clean my fridge’ recipes but it turned out soooo good, everybody loved it. And I used only one eggplant which was not enough at all.

Not only these Mini Eggplant Pizzas are super tasty, but they are also very pretty. I think they would be ideal for  party canapes when you’d really like to impress your guests. In addition, they are gluten-free, so if you love pizza, but for some reason cannot have gluten, try these! You will absolutely love them!

Here’s what you need for these beautiful bites.

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a baking tray and arrange the eggplant slices. Drizzle some olive and season with salt and pepper. Cook in the oven for about 15 minutes.
  2. Remove from the oven and start topping them up. Start with the sun-dried tomatoes, add one or two, depending how big are your eggplant slices. Add the grated Parmesan cheese and then finish with a quail egg on top.
  3. Place back in the oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until ready. If wished, sprinkle some thyme.

Enjoy!

Tip: Why not use the olive oil from the sun-dried tomatoes’ jar. Thus, you won’t waste anything and will add extra tomato flavour to your Mini Pizzas!
