Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 medium-large eggplant (about 1 pound/500 grams)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • fine sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 and 1/3 cups shredded dairy-free mozzarella cheese (see notes)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved (or quartered, if large)
  • 3 tablespoons EACH sliced olives and sliced roasted bell peppers (either or both are optional)
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds (optional)
  • 1 cup arugula leaves

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Position eggplant on cutting board with stem side up; using a large knife, cut eggplant into 1/2-inch thick slices.
  3. Place eggplant slices on prepared baking sheet. Brush top sides with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and sprinkle evenly with cheese, and tomatoes (also add olives, roasted peppers, and/or sunflower seeds,if using).
  5. Return pan to oven and bake for 7 to 10 minutes longer until eggplant is tender when pierced with a fork, cheese is melted, and tomatoes are softened.
  6. Top eggplant slices with arugula and serve!

Notes

Storage: Store cooled leftovers in an airtight container for up to 1 day.

Note about the Cheese: If you are not vegan, feel free to use an equal amount of regular mozzarella cheese in place of the non-dairy cheese.
