Best Roasted Eggplant Recipes
Roasted eggplant is a delicious and flavorful low-carb side dish that is surprisingly easy to make! There are many different types of eggplant available from our produce companies in New York, but we recommend using Globe, Italian, or Rosa Bianca eggplants. Globe eggplants are the largest variety, so they’re perfect for roasting. This recipe will turn this common vegetable into a mealtime staple:
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Chop two eggplants into round slices or 1-inch diced pieces. Thinner slices will caramelize quicker, so adjust the baking time depending on the size of the portions.
- Mix the chopped eggplant with some olive oil, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Eggplant will soak up the oil very quickly, so mix everything right away.
- Roast your eggplants on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil for around thirty minutes, or until the eggplant is caramelized and golden brown. You should gently stir your eggplants once in the middle of cooking.
Eggplants are pretty tasteless raw, but their flavor completely transforms when you roast them in a hot oven. Roasted eggplant is exceptionally versatile, so enjoy it as a snack with dip, mix it with your favorite pasta sauce, or serve it tossed in a salad!
