Bento 11/13

Roasted eggplant with tomato curry

One eggplant, cut in quarters and scored (don’t cut through the skin)
3-4 Roma tomatoes cut into wedges
½ yellow onion, cut into wedges
½ fennel bulb, cut into wedges
2 cloves garlic, peeled
Salt and pepper
Olive oil
Italian parsley

Set oven to 425. Place eggplant into a greased roasting dish, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper – roast in oven 15-20 min (or until soft).

Place tomatoes, onions, fennel and garlic into a greased roasting dish. Coat in olive oil and curry (to your taste) – roast in oven 15-20 min (or until soft).

Serve tomato curry over eggplant, top with a little parsley & YUM!


I use Alton Brown’s recipe, which is…

2 tablespoons whole cumin seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons whole cardamom seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons whole coriander seeds, toasted
1/4 cup ground turmeric
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne

Place all ingredients in a container with an airtight lid. Shake to combine. Store in a cool dry place for up to 6 months. When ready to use, grind and add to dishes according to taste.

  1. Hey, another Alton Brown fan! Haven’t tried the curry recipe, but have tried recipes from “I’m Just Here For The Food” and “…More Food.”

    Among the good things in life are Good Cats and Good Eats…

    Luna is quite a fine-looking rabbit. (Careful of the edge there, little bun!)

  3. Lando, there’s a problem. You are mostly white. The bedspread is white. How can you expect to leave signature fur all over it unless one of you is a different color?
