  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pierce eggplants several times with a fork, and place on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours, or until completely softened. Cool completely. Remove skin and chop fine. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, and set aside.
  3. In a skillet, cook garlic in 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat until lightly browned. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, the vinegar, sugar, oregano, and basil until well blended and sugar is dissolved. Pour over the eggplant, and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and toss again. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.

Pretty good. The final yield was a lot less than I was expecting. I rescaled it to feed 6 and it looked like it could barely serve as a side for 4.

I served this as a dip on french bread, in a pita as a sandwich and then finished it off as a salad. A real party in your mouth.

I didn't have time to bake the eggplant for 1 1/2 hours so I chopped it up raw in to small pieces and sauteed until soft. Then added the garlic, cooked for a couple minutes and added in all the...

Yummmm! I made this recipe exactly as stated however I only had 3 eggplant. I went ahead and grilled a bundle of white asparagus with a bit of olive oil and added that to the bowl of eggplant. ...
