Ina Garten’s Roasted Eggplant Spread


I found this recipe on the Food Network website and was eager to try it. I only recentlt heard about Ina Garten, aka The Barefoot Contessa, and this is the first of her recipes that I have tried. Definitely worth a go if you like eggplant! :):)
Total Time: 1 hr

Prep: 15 min

Cook: 45 min

Yield: 6 to 8 servings


1 medium eggplant

2 red bell peppers, seeded

1 red onion, peeled

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 tablespoons good olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon tomato paste


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut the eggplant, bell pepper, and onion into 1-inch cubes. Toss them in a large bowl with the garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly browned and soft, tossing once during cooking.

Cool slightly.

Place the vegetables in a food processor fitted with a steel blade, add the tomato paste, and pulse 3 or 4 times to blend. Taste for salt and pepper.

Enjoy! Xxxx Natascha
