  • 1 eggplant, unpeeled (approx 1-1/4 lb) Eggplant
  • 6 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar

  • 0 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 0 1/8 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 6 oz Romano Cheese


  1. Sprinkle eggplant with salt and place in a colander for 15 minutes to drain bitter juices. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Brush slices with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Grill or broil 3 minutes per side, until very lightly charred. Arrange slices in a circular pattern on a platter.
  2. Combine remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil, vinegar, sugar substitute, garlic (minced), parsley, oregano, black, and red pepper and a pinch of salt. Drizzle over eggplant slices.
  3. With a vegetable peeler, shave slices of Romano cheese over eggplant.
