Eggplant with Cheese is an Italian classic, prepared with Parmesan (Eggplant Parmigiana). Now we bring you a delicious idea inspired by our Latin flavors: Eggplant with Tropical Queso de Freír.
This recipe for Eggplant Cheese Towers is easy to prepare and with only a few ingredients: eggplant, Queso de Freír, tomato sauce, and basil. Each layer adds different textures and flavors. Eggplant becomes tender when cooked, and lightly fried or grilled. The cheese becomes a crispy golden brown on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. Tomato/marinara sauce fits perfectly with both ingredients. And the basil leaves bring a unique and fresh flavor. This recipe is lighter than Eggplant Parmigiana because it’s not breaded, and you can choose to bake, pan-sear, or grill the ingredients if you want to avoid the oil.
Enjoy these Eggplant Cheese Towers as an appetizer, for lunch or dinner.
