Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant cubed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano

Topping

  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1-2 pinch fleur de sel

Instructions

  1. Optional: Place the eggplant cubes in a colander and coat with salt generously. Let sit for about 20-30 minutes at room temperature.*
  2. Preheat oven to 325F
  3. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  4. Rince the eggplant cubes thoroughly with water to remove as much salt as possible then pat them dry with a clean piece of cloth.
  5. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  6. Spread the eggplant cubes evenly on the baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  8. Top with dried oregano and fleur de sel.

Recipe Notes

* Preparation time is calculated without the salting process as it is entirely optional. This process is used to get rid of the bitterness in the eggplant. Only the larger eggplants will show some bitterness, hence why we are using smaller ones for this recipe.
