While cruising pinterest the other day looking for recipes I came across this little delight – Eggplant Stacks at Everyday Paleo.

I decided to adapt the recipe to make it how I wanted it…  I am not really sure if “adapt the recipe” is the right term, since the only thing I really used to make my version was the photo, but here is what I did…

I sliced some eggplant and tomato and roasted the eggplant according to the recipe.

I stacked them up in layers in a baking dish.

food 013Added a little Balsamic and Pasta Sauce.

food 014Here is where my recipe really takes a detour from the original…

The original recipe has a beautiful little egg on top ( and a sausage patty…).  Mine has a beautiful piece of mozzarella cheese on top!  Organic of course, if that makes it any better?

food 015Popped it in the oven and broiled it until the cheese was bubbly and starting to brown.

*I did want to add a quick note about Nightshades.  There are some people who can be sensitive to Nightshade Plants due to the alkaloids they contain.  Nightshades can sometimes adversely affect calcium balance and be implicated as problematic in people suffering from headaches, arthritis, psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions.  Both Macrobiotic and Ayurvedic medicine recommend using nightshades in moderation with exception, of course.  According to whfoods.com,” Because the amount of alkaloids is very low in nightshade foods when compared with other nightshade plants, health problems from nightshade foods may only occur in individuals who are especially sensitive to these alkaloid substances”

 Tomorrow is already Friday??    Just had to throw that in there….  wow.

What is your favorite nightshade recipe?  Has anyone had trouble with nightshades?
