Caramelized Balsamic Eggplant

Healthy Fact of the Day

Eggplant is a nutrient-dense vegetable that's low in calories and high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It's also rich in antioxidants, particularly nasunin, which is found in the eggplant's skin and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. The balsamic vinegar and honey in this recipe add a touch of sweetness while providing additional antioxidants and beneficial compounds.

Ingredients

 

  • 2 large eggplants, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried basil, salt, and black pepper to create a marinade.

  3. Arrange the eggplant rounds on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Brush both sides of the eggplant rounds generously with the balsamic marinade.

  4. Roast the eggplant in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, flipping the rounds halfway through, until they are tender and caramelized.

  5. Remove the caramelized balsamic eggplant from the oven and transfer it to a serving platter.

  6. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve hot as a side dish or appetizer.
