This Turkish meze is perfect for making ahead of time when you expect guests. The eggplant may also be pan fried, but it requires less oil and tastes better when roasted in the oven.

  • Brush eggplant slices on both sides with olive oil and place on the baking tray in a single layer.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until soft and browned, about 20 minutes, turning slices over once after 10 minutes. Transfer slices to a large serving place, brush with vinegar, and sprinkle with salt. Let cool.

  • Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat and cook garlic until softened and fragrant without browning, about 3 minutes.

  • Mix parsley and walnuts in a bowl. Add sauteed garlic and a little bit of olive oil to make a paste. Mix well, season with salt, and spread the paste onto the cooled eggplant slices.

With all of the delicious and healthy ingredients I thought this would be amazing but the recipe wasn't specific enough for me to make it come out right. Two pounds of eggplant when sliced in about 1/2" slices (the recipe didn't specify thickness) filled 3 cookie sheets which was a whole lot more than I needed to serve 4. The paste of flat leaf parsley garlic walnuts and olive oil needed to be put in a food processor to make it spreadable. I'll make it again using what I've learned and will add more salt. Read More
