Eggplant Appy!!  (serves 4-6 depending on size of eggplant) *all organic if possible

-1 eggplant (large for more people)  (cut in strips length wise, about 1 cm wide)

-olive oil (drizzle)

-salt

Filling:

-4 mushrooms

-1/2 cup of sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil

-1/2 cup kale (any kind, washed and chopped rough)

-olive oil (2 tbsp)

-goats or  Danish feta cheese (1 tsbp)

-salt and pepper to taste

-fresh parsley (for garnish)

-squeeze of lemon

Eggplant Prep:

Lay the strips of cut eggplant on a tray and sprinkle with salt.  Allow to sit for 10mins.  This will draw out the bitter liquid.  After 10mins use a paper towel to dry eggplant and wipe off excess salt.  Drizzle olive oil over eggplant and place on baking tray.  Pop them into the oven and set to broil on high.  This will cook the eggplant fairly quickly so don’t walk away!!  Wait until eggplant is just slightly  roasted golden, take out and set aside.
