Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 400 g minced lamb
  • 2 eggplants
  • 40 g grated parmesan cheese
  • 400 g tomato paste
  • 2 onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Preheat your oven to 180 ° C.

Wash the eggplants and cut them into slices about 5 mm thick. Quickly sauté them in the pan so they are lightly colored on each side.

Peel and finely chop the onions and clove of garlic. Fry in a pan with olive oil over low heat for 3 minutes. Then add the minced meat, cinnamon and oregano and finish with the tomato paste. Mix, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Then remove the lid and cook for another 5 minutes.

Place the eggplants in a baking dish and cover with a layer of meat preparation. Repeat this several times until you reach the top of your bowl. Finish with a layer of eggplant and sprinkle with parmesan.

Bake your dish for 20 to 30 minutes. Serve hot, with steamed potatoes if you wish.
