Roasted Japanese Eggplant

Roasted Japanese Eggplant- a healthy & tasty way to enjoy your summer harvest of eggplants!

Roasted Japanese Eggplant

A few years ago I started growing Japanese eggplant in my vegetable garden. Not only are they easy to grow, they’re delicious! Japanese eggplants are sweeter and their flesh isn’t as tough as their American counterparts. This Roasted Japanese Eggplant recipe is my current favorite way to prepare them. It only takes 5 minutes of prep time and it’s the ideal side dish for light summer meals.

When cooking, I love to let the natural flavor of veggies shine. This simple marinade makes the eggplant tender but it doesn’t take away from its natural taste. A sprinkle of cilantro, diced red onion and pine nuts is the perfect finishing touch!
