Aubergine / Eggplant Tacos with Cilantro and Brie

Erin Gleeson writes; "these aubergine/eggplant "tacos" are a tasty appetizer… It’s basically just a little round of baked eggplant with brie and cilantro in the middle, folded up like a mini taco! You could also serve them alongside a main course as a vegetable. I bake/roast the eggplant rounds on a greased cookie sheet, drizzled with olive oil (generously) plus a bit of sea salt if you wish. If you flip the aubergine/eggplant half way through, it’ll get brown on both sides. About 8 minutes on each side - but watch them closely - if some slices are thinner, they’ll cook faster.
Enjoy!"




Cilantro is an herb with wide delicate lacy green leaves and a pungent flavour. The seed of the cilantro plant is known as coriander. Although cilantro and coriander come from the same plant, their flavours are very different and cannot be substituted for each other. (Some countries refer to the cilantro as coriander, so any references to "fresh coriander" or "coriander leaves" refer to cilantro.) It can be easily confused with flat-leaf parsley in appearance, so be sure to sniff carefully. Look for a bunch with un-wilted leaves in medium green. Found fresh year round in most markets.

Great idea!

Eggplant yes.
Cilantro no. I loathe the taste and the smell. Coriander is fine, the leaves are not.

That sounds quite different.

The dishes look so beautiful and the funny thing is -- I don't like eggplant and I especially don't like cilantro. But I will take the Brie anytime.

That's a different take on tacos - great idea.

That looks interesting - I will suggest at the next Head Office menu meeting. I remember scouring shops in search of 'cilantro'a few years ago - I didn't know what it was and neither did anyone else!

It certainly looks delicious but I am not a fan of tacos.
