Eggplant Mushroom Stacks

The key to a good recipe is an imagination. Eggplant in my humble opinion is something that requires a great deal of imagination and seasoning to boot. It is often misunderstood and not cooked very well either too greasy in eggplant parmesan or too bitter for consumption in a salad. My typical approach is a quick pan fry sans flour and egg and a simple sauce. Compound eggplant with mushrooms, spinach, grape tomatoes and fresh mozzarella you create nothing earth shattering just a really good, satisfying, healthy and easy meal and at the end of the day, throw imagination out the window and give me something good. p.s. note there is always feta and a piece of bread on the side.

2 hearty servings
Ingredients:
1 large eggplant washed and sliced in 1/2 in. portions
1/2 white button mushrooms
handful of cherry or grape tomatoes
2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 lb. fresh mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. cracked black pepper
Indoor grill or grated cast iron pan



Directions:
Brush eggplant slices with 1 tablespoon olive oil and half of the salt and pepper and set aside. Meanwhile heat saute pan and add cleaned and sliced mushrooms and sliced tomatoes, season with remaining salt. Cook spinach in 1/4 cup water and drain well. Cook until slightly brown. Heat grill and place seasoned eggplant slices, cook for 7-10 minutes turning once. Stack mushroom tomato mixture then spinach, top with mozzarella and heat until cheese melts

Oh my goodness that is such a nice photo!!! I'm tucking this in my "Eggplant arsenal" as we got so much from our CSA last summer I declared war on it. This looks yummy though and I'll use it as a tool to get through eggplant season.
