Directions

  1. Place olive oil and garlic in a large skillet. Fry (stirring occasionally) over a medium heat until the garlic is golden brown; approximately 2 minutes.
  2. Add eggplant and zucchini to the skillet, fry until the eggplant is brown and tender; approximately 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Add the tomato chunks to the skillet, stir the mixture until the tomato becomes a pulp. Mix in salt, oregano, and basil. Stir the entire mixture over the heat for 2 minutes, then remove pan from heat and let the mixture cool.
  4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  5. Slice the bread into 12 (1-inch thick) slices. Distribute garlic powder and butter evenly over the top of each slice. Place the slices directly onto the oven rack (do not use a cookie sheet, the bread will get crisper this way). Let the bread heat for 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the bread from the oven and arrange them on a serving platter. Spread the vegetable mixture over the 12 bread slices, distribute the topping as evenly as you can. Serve immediately.

This is a great recipe exactly as written, though I do always salt my eggplant first to make sure it's not bitter. I've tried other variations, all very good: adding several spoonfuls of pesto in lieu of the basil, melting mozzarella cheese on the garlic bread, serving with focaccia or pita bread. I've also varied the amount of each vegetable based on what I had on hand, and it's come out great every time.

Absolutely excellent! The only thing I will change next time is to serve it on toasted pita triangles rather than crusty bread...I'll get more of the tasty spread that way!

Although I added goat cheese for a little extra flavor, I was a bit disappointed with the intensity of flavor overall. Unfortunately, I did not have fresh herbs on hand so I used dried herbs (2x as much), so that may be reason for the perceived lack of flavor. Maybe it just needs more salt. I must agree with everyone that it is a very tasty dish and I looked forward to eating the leftovers (with extra salt :)
