Above is a great way to prepare aubergine. The Italian way! It's a great side dish or for a snack. Follow the recipe and see how it goes.
It's usually better after marinading for a few days in the fridge: Pickled eggplant Italian style
How about aubergines 'Milanese'. It is basically aubergines cut into slices, coated with egg and breadcrumbs then cooked in the oven until crisp.
Simple and delicious.
