I love meals that hero whole foods, like the roast eggplant in this case. You can serve this as a main with a topping or as a side. It's so quick and easy to prepare, and absolutely delicious!


Eggplant and Harrissa are a match made in heaven of smokey, tangy creamy goodness.


Make sure to pick nice firm medium plump eggplants ;)

HARISSA ROASTED EGGPLANTS

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C

  2. Rinse the eggplants and halve them lengthways.

  3. Using a sharp knife, score the flat, cut side of the eggplant, making a diamond pattern.

  4. Prepare a baking tray with parchment baking paper and place the eggplants, flat side facing up.

  5. Add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a small bowl and brush the oil over the spongey surface of the eggplants, coating it thoroughly.

  6. Pop the tray into the oven and roast for 20 minutes - set a timer.

  7. Prepare the harissa sauce by combining the harissa paste, coconut aminos and olive oil and mixing it thoroughly.

  8. After 20min, remove the tray from the oven and brush or spoon the harissa sauce onto the eggplants, coating them evenly. Make a bit more sauce if you need it.

  9. Put them back in the oven to roast for 20 minutes - set a timer.

  10. After 20min, check on the eggplants. You can leave them in for a bit longer if you want some more caramelisation.

ENJOY + HAPPY EATING!
