To encourage healthy cooking and eating, the New York City Mayor’s Office has created a Tumblr blog called “Healthy Recipes By New Yorkers for New Yorkers.”
New Yorkers across the five boroughs can now share their favorite healthy recipes -- ideally featuring fruits, vegetables and healthy proteins – with fellow New Yorkers!
The Go Healthy staff found this great appetizer/side-dish recipe by the Commissioner of the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs, Jonathan Mintz! Enjoy.
Recipe: Tiverton Eggplant
pine nut (optional)
Cut eggplant vertically into round slices, the thickness of a table coaster or so. Marinate briefly in olive oil and then either grill or sauté. Remove from heat.
Cut similar-sized and shaped slices of tomato and place on top of each round of eggplant. On top of each add a dollop of goat cheese and a dollop of pesto. A few pine nuts could also be added.
