Preparation of bast shoes from potatoes with mushrooms and eggplant:

Step 1: prepare the eggplant.

Eggplant is a very peculiar vegetable, and the longer it is infused, the tastier and juicier it will be in the dishes. Therefore, we wash the component under running water and with the help of a knife we ​​clean it from the tail and peel. On a cutting board, we cut the eggplant into thin circles with a knife. Spread the crushed ingredient in a deep bowl, sprinkling each layer with a small amount of salt. We leave the vegetable in this condition for the whole night so that during this time all the liquid comes out of it, and it is as if lightly marinated in its own juice. Then we wash the eggplants slightly under running water, wring them out with our hands and put them into the pan. We put the container on a fire less than average and fry the eggplants on both sides in a small amount of vegetable oil until a golden crust is formed. Now peel the garlic from the husk and with the help of the garlic we grind the ingredient. Pour purified water and vinegar into the bowl and mix everything well with a tablespoon. The proportions of the components can not be adhered to, since if you do not like spicy dishes, then it is necessary to reduce the amount of vinegar. In this case, it is better to try the solution on the tip of the tongue. And if it is very concentrated, dilute in more water. Then we transfer the fried eggplant from the pan to the bowl, salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with chopped garlic and pour everything with vinegar. Gently mix everything with a spoon and leave aside for 2-3 hours to insist. After the allotted time, we spread the pickled eggplant on a cutting board with a spoon. We cut into small pieces with a knife so that it is convenient to stuff Lapti with them. Finely chopped vegetable return back to the container.

Step 2: prepare the mushrooms.

We wash the mushrooms well under running water and put them on a cutting board. Using a knife, grind the component into small pieces and transfer immediately to the plate.

Step 3: prepare the onion.

Peel the onion with a knife from the husk. Rinse well under running water and chop finely on a cutting board. Shredded component is transferred to a clean plate.

Step 4: prepare the mushroom roast.

We spread the onions in a pan and fry in a small amount of vegetable oil until a soft golden crust appears. Be sure to make a small fire and constantly mix the chopped vegetable with a wooden spatula so that it does not burn. Then we add the crushed champignons to the onion component and with constant stirring with a spatula, fry them until all the mushroom liquid has evaporated from the container and the champignons become a brownish-golden hue. Optionally, pepper and salt our roasting.

Step 5: prepare the potatoes.

And now the most interesting moment begins! Cooking different dishes in cooking is a whole art. And each of us is a skilled housewife, knows how to craft different tasty masterpieces. This recipe also applies to such a dish. Therefore, we proceed to process potatoes. We clean the ingredient with a knife from the peel. We rinse it under running water and put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, we make a cut so that in appearance the potato resembles a bast shoe, but only without a groove. Then, using a teaspoon, remove the flesh of the vegetable in the place where there should be a groove for the foot in real inedible shoes. And now with the sharp tip of the knife we ​​carefully make small crosswise cuts on the surface of the potato in the place where we have the toe of the foot. We grease the baking sheet well with vegetable oil and put the prepared potatoes on it. Bake in oven at temperature 180 ° C during 40 minutes until the surface of Laptey begins to brown. Attention: since we will bake our dish again, do not overdo it over time, so that the bast shoes do not burn. It is enough that they slightly become a golden hue. After the allotted time, we take out our Lapti from the oven and leave aside so that they cool to room temperature.

Step 6: prepare the cheese.

Using a coarse grater, grind the cheese and transfer to a plate. By the way, to prepare this original dish, both Russian, or Dutch, and Adyghe hard cheeses are suitable. In a word, according to your taste and discretion.

Step 7: prepare Potato Lapti with mushrooms and eggplant.

Everything is ready to cook our dish! Therefore, we spread the mushroom and eggplant fillings in Lapot alternately with a teaspoon, sprinkle with grated cheese and put back in the oven on a baking sheet to bake at a temperature 160-180 ° C for 10 minutes until your cheese melts and begins to brown. After that, we take our dish out of the oven and transfer it to the serving dish.
