“A simple baked dish of sliced eggplant, tomatoes, and onion that is so delicious! From Melissa D'Arabian. I did sprinkle some dried herbs (herbs de provance) over the vegetables before baking.”

  3. Remove to a plate and repeat with the onion slices.
  4. Rub a baking dish with the garlic halves, then discard.
  5. In the baking dish, layer the eggplant, onions, and tomato slices, alternating the vegetables in rows with slices overlapping.
