Easy Imam Bayildi

Imam Bayildi is a classic Greek recipe for eggplants stuffed with savory tomatoes, onions and spices with roots in its Ottoman occupied past. The literal translation means “the imam fainted,” of course because this combo of tender eggplants and savory tomatoes tastes so incredibly delicious. This is my go-to dish for both a relatively easy weeknight vegetarian meal, and as a show-stopping meatless marvel at my pop-us dinners. It packs so much flavor, is gorgeous, and incredibly stunning.

Is there anything an eggplant can’t do? I’m in love with the vegetable simply grilled with a little olive oil and salt, stuffed with tomatoes and onions, or finessed with red sauce and cheese in eggplant parmesan, but my absolute favorite way to eat it is in this simple Greek dip: Melitzanosalata.
