“We are huge fans of roasting, and while most of us don’t want to turn on the oven in the summer, this recipe is so worth it. The best part is the longer it sits the better it gets, so you don’t have to rush to make it when company comes.” – Huckle & Goose
1 Eggplant, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 Tomatoes, cut in 1-2 inch pieces
Sea Salt, to taste
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Lemon, juiced

3 T Fresh Basil, chopped
1 baguette, from a good bakery, or your favorite kind of bread, sliced
Prep: 10 min | Cook: 20 min | Total Time: 30 min
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Add the eggplant and tomatoes to a sheet pan and drizzle with some oil. Gently toss to coat and sea with a few pinches of salt. Transfer to the oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
- While veggies are roasting, in a bowl whisk the garlic, lemon juice, 1?4 cup olive oil, a few cracks of pepper, and a few pinches of salt. Set aside.
- Remove the eggplant and tomato from the oven and add to the bowl. Stir in the basil and taste. Add more oil or salt if needed. Cover and transfer to the fridge for at least an hour.
