Eggplant Rolls

Eggplant Rolls

Eggplant rolls are a delicious and versatile dish that can be served as an appetizer or a main course.


  • 1 large eggplant
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Slice the eggplant lengthwise into thin, even slices, about 1/4-inch thick. You can use a mandoline slicer or a sharp knife for this.
  3. Place the eggplant slices on a baking sheet and brush both sides with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast the eggplant slices in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes until they become tender and slightly golden. Flip them halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  5. In a bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh basil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine.
  6. Remove the eggplant slices from the oven and let them cool slightly.
  7. Spoon a small amount of the ricotta cheese mixture onto each eggplant slice, spreading it evenly along the length.
  8. Gently roll up each eggplant slice, starting from one end. Place the rolled-up eggplant slices seam-side down on a baking dish.
  9. Pour the marinara sauce over the eggplant rolls, covering them completely.
  10. Bake the eggplant rolls in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until they are heated through and the flavors meld together.
  11. Remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
  12. Garnish with fresh basil leaves if desired.

These eggplant rolls can be served warm or at room temperature. They make a delicious appetizer or can be enjoyed as a vegetarian main course. You can also sprinkle some extra grated Parmesan cheese on top before serving. Enjoy the tasty and healthy eggplant rolls!
