EGGPLANTS IN TOMATO SAUCE AND EGGS

A summer dish with elements of ratatouille and kayana (a traditional greek recipe for eggs in tomato sauce)! Summerish, fragrant, delicious, perfect to hang out one day with dinner on the terrace.

For a rather “professional flavor”, you can optionally peel tomatoes. To do this you will need to make a cross on the bottom of the tomatos and then immerse them in boiling water for 2 minutes. Then cool down and peel them.
