I used to cook this often in Manila. It’s a quick low-calorie side dish which can be whipped up in twenty minutes. This dish serves 1!

Ingredients:
1 medium size zucchini
1 medium size eggplant
1/2 white onion
olive oil
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons of crumbled goat cheese or feta cheese

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Slice the zucchini, eggplant and onions. Coat a baking pan with olive oil. Spread the zucchini and eggplant slices on one layer. Spread the onions on the top layer. Sprinkle salt and pepper according to taste. Bake for ten minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Cool for 5 minutes. Spread the goat cheese and balsamic vinegar on top. It’s all ready to eat!
