Baked Marinara Eggplant Boats

Eggplants comes in different shapes and sizes. There’s global and Japanese eggplants. Japanese eggplants have a thinner skin and are less bitter. I used a Japanese eggplant for this recipe because they also have less seeds and a more subtle taste to me.

I’ve tried roasting eggplant but it’s challenging to get it perfectly right. I decided to make eggplant boats since I’ve seen zucchini boats around! Well, I think I found a new way of cooking eggplant now! Topped with basil for a kick of herbs! I served it with some tomato baked salmon & brown rice.
