Turkish Baked Eggplant
This classic Turkish dish revolves around a handful of simple ingredients, making their quality of the utmost importance. Good quality extra virgin olive oil makes all the difference here, both in the flavor of the recipe and in your health. Simple and easy to throw together for a weeknight meal- this dish makes for an excellent #MeatlessMonday meal.
Olive oil contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and also keeps your hair, skin, and nails in tip-top shape. Eggplant is high in fiber, potassium, and B vitamins, while being low in calories. It also contains a special flavonoid which has been found to help lower blood pressure. Serve this dish with a lightly dressed green salad and a loaf of crusty bread to soak up all the delicious saucy flavors.
