With the cooler months ahead, this simple vegetarian dish comprising of thinly sliced eggplant and filled with cheese, vegetables and herbs, rolled and then baked will become a firm family favourite when winter rolls around. Itís comfort food at its very best. To keep the recipe low in fat, I dry fried the eggplant and used low fat and salt reduced cheese.

Itís a great way to get young kids to try eggplant.
