Roasted Balsamic Eggplant


  • 2 large eggplants, peeled and sliced into 1/8 pieces
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp four blend pepper, ground
  • Olive oil cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

  6. When it’s cooked, remove the eggplant from the oven and place it in a bowl. Then chop and mash using a fork.
  7. Finally, add the balsamic vinegar and continue to mash.
  8. Serve it warm or chilled, as a side dish or spread for pita bread.
