Risotto and baked eggplants (aubergine)

Eggplants and potato "risotto"


The idea for this dish came to me while I was watching the final episode of  Gordon Ramsay's Best Restaurant (on Netflix), where one of the finalists, Casamia, had on their winning menu "risotto" made with potatoes. I loved the idea as much as I love potatoes and I decided to make it for dinner tonight. 
I baked  this eggplants, then topped it with my version of potato "risotto", Pecorino cheese, and broiled it for 5 minutes. 
We loved every bit of it, no leftovers tonight.






What was your treat to yourself tonight?


See you,
Marina
