Oven roasted eggplant
I really like eggplants. They are tasty and melting, it’s one off the vegetables I like to cook! Baking them is probably my favorite method! Indeed, it is often recommended to cook the eggplants in round slices in a pan. But this method of cooking requires a lot of oil to avoid the eggplants burning. They are also saturated with oil, which makes them very oily and not very digestible! So here is this recipe for baked aubergines, Grilled and very tasty! For people who are looking for more fat (keto diet) you can add some fresh olive oil or coconut oil after serving them in your plate.
Oven roasted eggplant

Baking the eggplants in the oven makes them really melt-in-the-mouth and really not much oily! Adding spices level up the seasoning, it tastes very good!
You can of course vary the spices according to your own preferences. I must say that I often change the types of seasonings so that I don’t always get the same taste.
If you don’t want to add oil to the cooking, it’s possible, this way they will be really very healthy! You can also use coconut oil instead of olive oil, which will give a yummy exotic taste to your aubergines. Moreover, it will be more resistant to heat from the oven, and you will get the benefits of this very special oil!
If you are on the ketogenic diet, this dish will be very suitable for you! In that case, don’t worry about reducing the oil! You can even add a pinch of cheese to the slices 2 minutes before the end of the cooking time!
