Verdict

We didn’t eat a lot of eggplant at my house growing up. It was something I developed a taste for in adulthood. It’s one of my favorite veggies, but I’m always looking for quick, easy ways to cook it. I used actual olive oil instead of spray for this recipe, which wasn’t the best idea. A spray will evenly distribute and go on lighter. Using actual olive oil caused things to cook a too fast. My dish was overcooked, but the flavors were still there. Next time I think it will be better.

    Perhaps try tossing the vegetables, olive oil and herbs together in a bowl — and mix with your hands (best way to coat things evenly!).

      Thanks, Kim! I’m hit or miss with my olive oil roasting sometimes.
