Eggplant without garlic? Yes, it can work - deliciously. This recipe seems to me to bring out the glorious flavor of eggplant and is wonderful for a change to other garlicky eggplant recipes. It is important not to pulverize the coriander.

This review is based on how I made it not the recipe as written. I used 1 tsp dried cilantro instead of coriander seed and upped the lemon juice to 2 Tbsp. I mixed all the seasonings into the oil prior to applying to slices. After baking topped with diced fresh tomatoes that were mixed with a little basil and salt. Easy and yummy. Read More

I did not have coriander seed so used a different herb mix but even so this was quite good. There were leftovers and it got better every time I ate it! The lemon seemed to blend with the spice over time to deliver a really tasty flavor. Read More

I really enjoyed this. I sweat the eggplant first to get rid of the bitterness and cut into rounds. This was my first time using coriander and I was surprised what a nice faint flavor it adds. I made this according to the recipe first and thought it was great. Then I added tomatoes feta and more lemon and basil for a nicer presentation. See my before and after photos. Next time I will cut thicker than 1/4 inch because it doesn't hold its shape very well when cut so thin. I will also peel the eggplant as I'm not a fan of the skin but that's just preference. My eggplant stuck to the pan a little despite the olive oil coating so I would recommend spraying your pan lightly with cooking spray. Overall a tasty and easy recipe that I would make again.

These were nice! I didn't have coriander seed so I used dried parsley and ground coriander - you can really use whatever herbs and spices you have on hand. Next time instead of cutting into length-wise slices I'm going to cut them into thick rounds. Read More
