Another Way to Enjoy Chinese Eggplant

There is another way to enjoy Chinese eggplant... Simply prepare it the same way as above but without the cheese. Then cut each slice of the Chinese eggplant into smaller pieces. Add slices of white onion and some orange grape tomatoes. Sprinkle some grapeseed oil or olive oil and some dried basil. Then cut a few slices of Mortadella and fry on each side for a few minutes. Place on the plate next to the Chinese eggplant and enjoy. You can add some freshly toasted bread if you like.
