Baked Cheesy Eggplant

I wonder if it's an eggplant feast at the market today because of its abundance and cheap price sold at Php6 a kilo. Sometimes, I tend to hoard things to take advantage of its low cost. This time, I wanted to come up an eggplant recipe not just with a twist and a kick but nutritious menu surely kids will love and enjoy. With this healthy unusual treat, this will certainly be a big hit at home among our kids.


5 pcs. medium eggplant
1 onion, minced
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 medium size tomatoes, seeds removed and chopped
1 tbsp. flour mixed in 1/4 c. water
1 c. evaporated milk

  1. Bring eggplants into a boil until tender. Remove from heat. Pat dry with paper towel. Cut into half lengthwise size. Arrange in baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a skillet, saute garlic, onion, and tomato. Add in the evaporated milk, flour, salt and pepper. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour the mixture into the eggplant baking dish.
  4. Top with shredded cheese.
