Wow..has it been almost 2 months since my last post?? Time flies and unfortunately the holidays took over my life for awhile but I am hoping to be back and cooking healthy and big for the next few months! With all the snow we are having in this area what else is there to do anyway??? I must admit that during the holiday season I was not cooking the most healthy dishes which made it very tough to fill in my blog!! But I am back and trying to go strong and lean of course. Here is a dish that I prepared that again was very easy, very delicious, very healthy and most of all very filling!!

Mediterranean Pizza

Ingredients:

1 Large Eggplant sliced vertically in 1 inch slices

1/2 cup prepared hummus

1 small bunch of fresh spinach

1 box of frozen artichoke hearts

1 shallot

2 cloves of garlic

1/4 cup reduced fat feta cheese

2 tblsp olive oil

juice of 1/2 lemon

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400

After you have sliced the eggplant legnthwish place on a baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper

Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. You want the eggplant still slightly firm.

While the eggplant is baking saute the shallot, garlic, spinach and artichoke hearts until soft. Season with salt and pepper.

Once you pull the eggplant out of the oven let cool slightly and put a generous spread of hummus on each slice

Top each slice after you spread the hummus with the spinach and artichoke mixture and top with feta cheese

Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes

Sprinkle with lemon juice for extra fresh flavor after it comes out of the oven

Please enjoy!!

Till tomorrow, love health and big food!!!
