Vegetarian Baked Brinjal (Egg plant) with Tomato Recipe



Brinjals or egg plant belongs to the nightshade family of plants like tomato, which contain traces of solanine. Therefore those with Rheumatoid Arthritis should not take these types of vegetables because they could make the joint pain worse.
However, eggplant is really nice and easy to cook. For those without joints problem, I guess it should be ok to eat egg plants!

Ingredients
Brinjal (egg plant), 2 pcs
Tomato, 2 pcs
Salt to taste
Soya sauce, a dash
Paprika, 1 teaspoon
Olive oil, 3 tablespoons
Pepper to taste
Butter, 1 tablespoon
Garlic, 3 cloves, chopped finely

Cut brinjals into four. Cut off the top part of the tomato and a little of the bottom part so that it can stand upright. Put both brinjals and tomatoes on baking tray. Pour olive oil over them. Season the tomatoes and brinjals with salt, paprika and pepper. Add butter and olive oil. Sprinkle the chopped garlic over the brinjals and tomatoes. Bake the brinjals and tomatoes in preheated oven at 200 Dec C for 20 minutes.
