Delight in the simple yet delectable flavors of our Eggplant Rounds—an easy-to-make Mediterranean-inspired dish that's as versatile as it is delicious. These rounds are the epitome of rustic elegance, featuring thick slices of eggplant that are generously brushed with olive oil, seasoned with aromatic oregano, and baked to golden perfection. With a wonderful balance of savory, herbal, and earthy notes, each bite is a true feast for the senses.
Start by slicing your eggplants into half-inch thick rounds that act as the perfect canvas for your seasonings. A liberal brush of high-quality olive oil adds a layer of richness that brings out the natural flavors of the eggplant. A dusting of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper enhance the vegetable's innate sweetness, while a sprinkle of dried oregano transports your taste buds straight to the Mediterranean coast.
Once baked, these rounds transform into sumptuous, golden disks with a soft, melt-in-the-mouth interior and a slightly crisp exterior. Flip them halfway through the baking process to ensure even cooking and that gorgeous golden hue.
Though delicious on their own, these eggplant rounds truly shine when served alongside an assortment of complementary foods. Picture a mezze platter adorned with these rounds, surrounded by creamy hummus, tangy tabouleh, salty olives, crumbled feta, crunchy radishes, and crisp crackers. Whether you're hosting a dinner party or simply craving a taste of the Mediterranean, these Eggplant Rounds offer a taste experience that's both comforting and gourmet.
