  • Mix together lemon juice, salt and olive oil.
  • Lay the eggplant slices on the baking tray in one layer, brush with the olive oil mixture and sprinkle with half of the sesame seeds.

  • Bake the eggplant for 10 minutes, then turn over the slices and bake for another 10 minutes.

Tips

In this recipe, it is important to really brush the slices with olive oil mixture, not toss them all in a bowl with the marinade. The eggplant absorbs all liquids really fast so in this case taking extra time to lightly brush the slices pays off
You can play around with white and black sesame seeds to make the dish more fun!
