Roasted Eggplant and Feta

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Susiecat too

This is a Greek recipe. This can be used to top a salad of baby spinach or other greens, pasta, couscous or any other similar thing. Or, scoop it up on small bites of good crusty bread, or serve as a variation of eggplant bruschetta. It can be served as an appetizer, a side dish, or a meatless main course.

Very good, I also roasted bell peppers and onions with the eggplant. Added cherry tomatoes as a final touch on top. Served on hearts of romaine.
