This is one of our best eggplant recipes!
- 1/4 cup feta cheese for non vegans
- 1 tablespoon savory
- 1 tablespoon dried cilantro substitute instead of fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley substitute instead of fresh parslely
- 2 tablespoons olive oil substitute instead of avocado oil
- 1/2 jar roasted bell peppers substitute instead of freshly roasted peppers
- 5 tablespoons marinara substitute instead of tomato
- 1 tsp garlic powder substitute instead of garlic cloves
- 1 tsp sea salt substitute instead of himalayan pink salt
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
- 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
- In a pan, pour the avocado oil
- Once the oil warms up, add all the cut-up ingredients (eggplants, roasted peppers, tomato, garlic)
- Add salt and ground black pepper
- Cook until all the ingredients mesh up and blend well together for about 5 minutes.
- Garnish with the cilantro, and parsley. Add the crumbled feta cheese if desired.
- 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.
