easy-cheesy-baked-eggplant-5

 

This breaded baked eggplant with marinara, Greek yogurt/sour cream, fresh basil and Parmesan (or whatever veggies and cheese you have on hand) makes a great weeknight meal.  It requires minimal effort; just slice up one large eggplant into ~3/4″ slices, dip the slices in egg then bread crumbs, bake for 10 minutes, flip and bake for another 10 minutes, add the toppings and bake for 10 minutes more.   Dinner served!

 

Easy Tomato Bisque Soup

 

I love tomato bisque soup.  The creaminess, the tangy tomato, the hint of fresh basil all work together to create a deeply satisfying dish.  It can be a main meal with a little bread and salad on the side, or it can serve as a complement to a grilled cheese sandwich.  This easy tomato bisque recipe comes together in minimal time and with minimal effort since it uses canned crushed tomatoes that don’t need to stew as long.
