Oven baked eggplant

 

Eggplants/ Aubergine, depending on where you come from, was never my favorite thing as a child, I am surprised as to how much I like them as an adult. When I was in college my housemate used to make the tastiest, thickest curries and the secret ingredient was eggplants. At that time I never really tasted it as the flavor of the other ingredients like beef would take over. Then in 2015 on my first weight loss journey, I used to eat only salads and I visited a restaurant whose greek salad had slices of pan grilled eggplant, that was the moment I became an eggplant lover.

There are so many ways to make eggplants and with time I will be sharing some here and on my Youtube channel, For today I wanted to share with you this delicious oven-baked eggplant recipe, It was so delicious, Also note that you can blend it after baking it with a dash of Olive oil and you can get a very healthy dressing for your veggies.
