How to Make Roasted Egplant (Vegetarian)

Step-by-Step

  1. Line a baking sheet with foil
  2. Pour olive oil onto baking sheet
  3. add garlic,onions and black pepper to oil in pan
  4. put cubed eggplant on baking sheet,roll around in oil until well coated.
  5. eggplant is like a sponge and will soak up all of the olive oil so you may need to add more.
  6. The reason I say to add the salt later is because salt will pull out the liquid in the eggplant and you don't want to do this. You want the eggplant moist.
  7. bake for 30 minutes at 350* or until soft
  8. pour mixture into a large bowl and mash with a fork or leave it the way it is and pour over pasta
  9. serve as a side dish or over pasta for a vegetarian meal
