Simple Recipe!

This quick and healthy side is a low-carb lover’s dream!

Eggplant – Whole eggplants should be firm and waxy to the touch, without any sunken, or dark brown spots. Most supermarkets carry large, pear-shaped eggplants which are perfect for this recipe.

Seasonings – Oil and garlic are all you need to bring out the mild flavor of eggplant. Feel free to enhance the dish with DIY seasoning blends like garlic and herb, or a zesty southwest style.

Variations – Try combining roasted eggplant with other roasted veggies, like oven-roasted radishes, or a mix of peppers and zucchini, or add eggplant cubes to a chilled cherry tomato salad for a pop of color and nutrition.

How to Roast Eggplant

The beauty of this recipe is in its ease of preparation!

  1. Prepare eggplant slices (as per the recipe below).
  2. Season with oil, garlic, ginger, and salt and pepper.
  3. Roast for 25-30 minutes. Garnish with parsley.

Extra Toppings

Sprinkle slices of eggplant with parmesan cheese and place under the broiler until the cheese is golden brown and crispy!

Tips for Success

It may be a good idea to remove excess moisture and condense the flavor from the eggplant. To do this, chop the eggplant, place it in a colander or bowl, and toss it with some salt. Allow it to sit for 10 minutes. Drain thoroughly or pat dry with paper towels before roasting.
