Greek Roasted Eggplant Recipe

Sunday, February 22, 2015
This baked Greek Roasted Eggplant is just loaded with fresh herbs spices feta cheese and tomatoes baked all on top of a thick slice of this delicious vegetable.

During the season we just love coming up with new ideas to top eggplant slices, and this topping is one of the best ways to serve it.

This easy recipe is baked in around 15 minutes and bursting with flavors of garlic and Greek herbs and spices.

I love feta cheese and it gives the eggplant the perfect amount of saltiness.

Keeping this simple or dressing it up with a side of tzatziki sauce and some warm homemade pita bread, this is a home run side dish you can make a whole meal out of.

  1. This looks fantastic!! My husband is Italian and we love (I'm talkin LOVE) eggplant so this recipe is perfect for us. Sounds both healthy and delicious and can't wait to try it. Would probably do it as a pita sandwich and possibly drizzle a little tzatziki sauce over the roasted veggies before eating. This sounds like a definite winner and thank you so much for posting this!!
