  5. Dissolve the tomato paste in the vegetable broth and add it to the skillet. Stir well and cook for another 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the parsley, mint, and dill.
  7. Spread half of the vegetable mixture in a baking dish. Layer the eggplant slices on top of the vegetables. Spread the remaining vegetable mixture over the eggplant slices.
  8. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  9. Remove the aluminum foil and bake for another 15 minutes.
