Baked Eggplant with Artichokes
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces roughly chopped fresh mushrooms
1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained & roughly chopped
1/4 cup sliced black olives
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried Italian herb blend
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup prepared garlic hummus
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
8 slices grilled or broiled eggplant
6 ounces shredded Italian cheese blend
Preheat the oven to 350◦F. Coat a deep baking dish with cooking spray.
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add the mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic, artichoke hearts, olives, herb blend, salt, pepper, hummus, wine and chicken broth. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Place four slices of eggplant in a single layer in the prepared casserole. Spread with 1/2 of the mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with 3 ounces of the cheese. Place another 4 slices of eggplant over that and repeat the layers to use up the vegetables and cheese, ending with a layer of cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand five minutes before serving.
