Garlicky Roasted Eggplant with Citrus Tahini Dressing

Hey guys! Today I’m sharing with you a quick and easy side recipe for my Garlicky Roasted Eggplant and Citrus-Tahini Dressing. Omgsh do I L.O.V.E this one!

I feel as though eggplant does not get the recognition it deserves – it really is a blessing of a side dish. There is something that is so warm, comforting and wholesome about eggplant. It’s a veg that is deep and complex, like mushrooms or sweet potato.

  1. Why have you not acknowledge Ottolenghi as inspiration for your recipe?

      Hi Sara! Thanks so much for the comment and for sending this delicious looking recipe by Ottolenghi. I must admit that I didn’t know that he had a similar recipe, but my does it look gorgeous. The inspiration for my dish came from similar Lebanese dishes I’ve had at various restaurants with roasted eggplant and tahini (usually they blend theirs, but I like mine whole). Pomegranates and mint are also popular in Lebanese dishes, so I decided to top with these. Thanks so much though for sharing this recipe with me. I heard of Ottolenghi a few years ago from a friend who lives in London and would love to try his restaurant one day. 🙂
