"It's a traditional Ukrainian dish and I love it so much! These beautiful eggplant rolls make my mouth water so desperately! Spectacular appetizer!"

Ingredients Serves 6

  • 3 tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic

I love this recipe! I've made it multiple times and it is just delicious! But I do have a question: do you know if I can make them one day ahead if I keep them refrigerated?
