Roasted Eggplant


Eggplant, oh eggplant, what am I going to do with you? I gave up a few weeks ago when I got another eggplant in my Produce Basket. I've done Eggplant Salad with Chickpeas and Feta, Eggplant Parmesan, Eggplant Patties, and Grilled Eggplant and a few more non-blog worthy recipes.

And I think I maxed them all out. So, I decided I would want to use it eventually and decided to roast it up and freeze for whenever that day arrived.

I followed Ina Garten's recipe for Roasted Vegetables, let it cool, then stashed it in the freezer for a few weeks. I was able to hide it in some Crockpot Lasagna a few weeks later, where it was great and I wasn't so eggplant-ed out.

recipe adapted from Ina Garten

1 eggplant, diced

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Toss the eggplant with the olive oil, salt, and pepper on a large sheet pan. Roast for 40 minutes, until browned, turning once with a spatula.
