To make the filling: mix together the lord peynir, parsley, scallions, 1/3 c breadcrumbs, 2 TBSP olive oil, 2 TBSP thick yogurt, 1 tsp dried oregano and salt (to taste).

Place the chopped tomatoes at the bottom of your cooking pan. Drizzle over 1 TBSP of olive oil and season with 1 tsp of oregano and salt. Stir well.

Pre-heat the oven on 375F/190C.

To prepare the eggplant: Slice the eggplant into thick round pieces. Season with salt and then one by one, spoon the filling on top of each eggplant round to create a nice mound of filling. Sprinkle over a few breadcrumbs on top and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the eggplant is tender and the filling is lightly browned.

Serve and Enjoy with the eggplant and some of the tomatoes.

Bon Appetit!
