Roasting The Perfect Eggplant

Updated on December 28, 2011

Roasting Eggplants.

To me there is nothing better than cooking your entire meal in the oven, it's delectable the taste is great plus once you finish your prep the oven will do all the rest. So like roasting a a tasty chicken or a tasty piece of lamb, how about roasting some great tasting vegetables like eggplant ,

Here eggplant is roasted in thick slabs that blacken and caramelize on the outside, sealing the juices inside. Serve as an accompaniment to roast-lamb or chicken.


Roasted Eggplant


2 eggplants (trimmed)

extra virgin olive oil

sea salt, black pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees, cut the eggplants into slices about 3/4 inch thick. Brush with olive oil and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, Roast eggplant in the oven for 40 minutes until tender and caramelized. Then serve.

      I love roasted vegetables. I'm not a fan of eggplant but do like roasted parsnips, beets, potatoes, carrots and turnips. All great for fall and winter meals.
