Ingredients

  • 2 eggplants cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 2 large red peppers or 3 small
  • 1 red onion cut in half and then sliced into 1/4" wedges
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • 4 oz crumbled feta 1/2 cup

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400° F (205° C).
  • Toss eggplant, red pepper, and red onion in olive oil, salt, pepper, minced garlic and oregano.
  • Roast in oven for 25-30 minutes, stirring half way through, until vegetables are fully roasted but not charred.
  • Remove from oven and toss with fresh herbs, lemon juice, and pine nuts. Place in a serving dish and gently fold in feta before serving. Dish can be served warm or chilled and served up to 24 hours later. Store leftovers in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Notes

  • Can be served hot or cold as a dip, spread, side dish, or even as part of a main dish served over pasta or rice. 
  • If preparing ahead of time, prepare everything but wait to fold in the feta until just before serving.
  • To make dairy free or vegan just leave out the feta cheese. Taste and sprinkle with additional salt if needed to make up for leaving the salty feta out.
