Eggplant Stacks – 2 ways

For both recipes, start off by slicing an eggplant into 1/4 inch rounds. Place in single layer on greased cookie sheet. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with some kosher salt. Broil on each side for 3-4 minutes until nicely browned. ***keep an eye so it doesn’t burn – every oven is different. 
Alternatively, you can grill – I don’t have access to a dairy grill but would have preferred that option.

1. Sabich eggplant stack (for gluten free, omit Malawach)
Remove 1 Malawach round from freezer. Allow to thaw just until you’re able to use a cookie cutter to cut through the dough. Use a round cookie cutter (2-2.5 inches) to cut 7 circles. Fry on both sides in butter. .
Once cooked, layer the following: Malawach round, humus, eggplant, Israeli salad, olives, pickled turnips, 1 slice of hard boiled egg, goat cheese, tahini and zaatar. . .

2. Caprese eggplant stack (good for Passover)
Layer the following:
Eggplant, fresh mozzarella cheese, 1 slice tomato, diced sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, pesto sauce (store bought or homemade) and @tuscaninifoods balsamic glaze .
Homemade pesto – in a blender, mix: 1 cup packed basil, 1 clove garlic, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and 1 tbsp pine nuts .
