30-Minute Healthy Meal
I always buy an Eggplant with the intention of making a hearty meal like Eggplant Parmesan or Eggplant Lasagna but end up chopping it up and roasting it. I usually serve it as a side dish or toss it with pasta for a quick healthy meal. Fall and winter time are the best time for cozy hearty suppers. But sometimes, we don’t always like to have meat as our main star of a dish.
That’s why I love using vegetables like Eggplant. It’s a meaty vegetable that is a perfect sub-in for meat or chicken. This recipe for Roasted Eggplant Tomato and Basil was adapted from one of Martha Stewart’s recipes. I thought the tomato would make a colorful and flavorful addition to the dish.
