Smoky Garlicky Roasted Eggplant Slices a.k.a. Oh My Eggplant!!!!

Oh my eggplant! Literally.

It’s amazing how wonderful a roasted veggie recipe can come out when you season it right! You’d think you were munching on spicy fries… I swear!

Eggplant is such a versatile veggie (so versatile that I’ve used it as pizza crust) + it packs so many health benefits from high fibre content to gut health to keeping you full, regulating blood sugar levels + cholesterol, rich in antioxidants in the form of beta-carotene, boosting immunity, bone health + preventing certain disease + protecting the heart.

Pair this eggplant with a beautiful piece of grilled fish or turkey, some smoked tofu or tempeh or throw it into salads, bowls, grilled veggies wraps or sandwiches with some goat, feta or cashew cheese & you’ve just taken your recipe from 0 to 100 real quick!!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large eggplant, halved + sliced
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar
  • Celtic sea salt + black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. dried parsley flakes
  • Avocado oil cooking spray

TO MAKE:

  • Place the eggplant slices in a bowl & season. Toss to coat.
