Roasted Eggplant (Aubergine) Spread

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

Serve warm or cold as a spread for crostini or toasted Italian bread slices. A suggestion from Katia that I think is fabulous, is to add a sprinkle of balsamic and a dash of parmesan to your bagel, crostini, sandwich etc.. to really put this over the top! Thanks Katia!

  2. Arrange the eggplant in a single layer on a nonstick coated baking sheet.
  3. Stir the olive oil and garlic together in a small bowl and lightly brush on both sides of the eggplant.

  5. Coarsely chop the eggplant and combine with the red peppers and capers; add black pepper to taste.

Awesome AND simple! When does that ever happen? I added roasted garlic, more capers, and 10 Klamath olives in place of olive oil.

I loved how simple this was. I used leftover roasted eggplant that I had, added extra capers to our taste. We stuffed the mixture into Pita pockets we made for a delicious vegetarian sandwich.
