Instructions
 

Prepare Ahead of Time

  • Wash hands with soap and water. Check out our article about how to wash hands properly
  • Gently rub produce under cold running water. Scrub firm produce with a clean vegetable brush under running water.
  • Roast the eggplants on 375 degrees for 1 hour or until soft and ready to eat
    Roasted Eggplants
  • Optional – bake the peppers while baking the eggplant. The alternative is to use a jar with already roasted bell peppers.
  • At this point, you can refrigerate the eggplants and the peppers for 1-2 days until ready to cook the meal.

Prep before cooking

  • Peel the roasted eggplants and peppers
  • Chop the garlic, roasted peppers and tomatoes in small chunks
  • Chop the eggplants in small cubes
  • Gather all ingredients together

Notes

  • Sometimes I skip the salt altogether and only use the crumbled cheese as a salt substitute.
  • Instead of the tomato, I sometimes use 3-5 tablespoons of marinara.
  • If vegan and dairy free, skip the crumbled cheese.
  • I love savory and cook with it a lot. I listed it as optional ingredient for this recipe in case you are a savory fan like I am! Some people may not like it in their eggplant dish.
  • We are extremely excited to announce we are now using the saferecipeguide.org guidelines to make our recipe safe-friendly. We will slowly be incorporating the safe recipe guidelines into our recipe instructions!
