Eggplant is a tricky thing to cook correctly. When it's cooked well, it's rich and flavorful.

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Slice the eggplant in half lengthwise, then cut each half into quarters lengthwise. Cut each of those in half to make two shorter quarters.
  3. Place the eggplant onto the baking sheet with the skin side down. Brush each piece with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast in the preheated oven until softened and golden brown (approx. 25-30 minutes).
  5. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with lemon juice. Serve hot.
