Eggplant & Goat Cheese Bake


5-6 thin eggplants, sliced into ¼″ thick sliceds
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 – 1 ½ c. medium sized tomatoes, chopped into 1″ cubes
4 oz. goat cheese
1/3 c. basil, roughly chopped
½ c. olive oil (or more) for drizzling
Kosher Salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  2. In a 13×9 baking dish layer the sliced eggplants, overlapping if necessary. Drizzle a little of the olive oil over the eggplants and gently toss them to coat. Scatter the garlic over the eggplant. Then scatter the tomatoes evenly over the eggplant.
  3. Crumble the goat cheese with a knife or your fingers and scatter it over the tomatoes.  Then scatter the basil on top.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the eggplant is softened and the cheese is slightly melted. Serve hot.

Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

In this I use plain goat cheese, but herbed goat cheese would be just as delicious. Play with the herbs that you like to include as well, here I use basil and parsley, but thyme or rosemary would be fantastic.

My daughter is still getting used to eggplant, she’ll eat it tossed with noodles. My husband and I gobble this right down every time.
