Roasted Eggplant

It is already April!!!
But, still it is cold. There is more snow predicted. 
Usually this time, the shops will have a garden center. Not this year.
But, the grocery store had zucchinis and eggplants and all. Hubs bought eggplants over the weekend. 

They were so pretty and fresh.

Cut them in cubes. No need to scoop the inside out. That is the beauty of my cooking. 

Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil. 
Spread a bit of oil on it. I used Canola. But any cooking oil will do. Spread the cubed eggplants on the sheet.


Sprinkle some salt and pepper. Sprinkle some more oil on top. Add some herbs of your choice. 
I had rosemary and thyme. Used both.
Place in the oven at 350 degree. In about half an hour it will give you the aroma. You can taste one. ( You won't burn you hand or mouth, right) . It must be cooked. If you want a bit more cooked, add a few more minutes of cooking time. 

It was easy. I didn't have to stay in the kitchen to watch it either. 
Do you roast veggies? Do you add spices or herbs?
