Units Scale

Simple roasted Eggplant

  • 1 lb eggplant
  • 23 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F
  2. Cut eggplant into 1-inch chunks and place in a bowl. 
  3. Toss with the oil, salt and pepper and place on a parchment-lined sheet pan.
  4. Bake 20 minutes,  toss the eggplant and roast 12-15 more minutes until the edges are crispy and the centers are tender. 


TIP: Always cook eggplant through- if it is still white or undercooked, it will be bitter and unpleasant to eat. Properly cooked eggplant is luscious and succulent.
