Roasted Eggplant Fan

In the eggplant season, I recommend preparing an unusual festive dish with chicken mince and a beautiful cheese and tomato hat. The finished dish looks very spectacular and has amazing taste. The eggplant fan is very juicy and fragrant. The dish is baked in the oven, so it turns out not only useful, but also low-calorie. For a recipe, choose young vegetables of small size with a thin peel. Typically, such vegetables do not require pretreatment. If the eggplant has a bitter taste, first soak the vegetables cut into fan in cold salted water for 20 minutes.
