Roasted eggplant slices with sea salt
Roasting Whole Eggplant Is The Preferred Method For Smooth Texture
For eggplant with a smooth, tender texture, simply wash the eggplant and pat it dry before roasting it for an hour in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
After that, peel the wrinkled eggplant skin off and use a spoon to scoop out the soft flesh. You can use it to top a salad or turn it into a dip or soup.
Roasted eggplant can also be incorporated into dishes like baba ganoush, a complex and flavorful Mediterranean dip made from eggplant, lemon, tahini, and garlic.
A similar flavor palette also makes for a delicious, creamy eggplant soup. Roasted eggplant’s tender, meaty texture also makes it a great filling in a vegan taco.
