This hearty, flavor-packed roasted eggplant bruschetta with Pomì Chopped Tomatoes is the perfect appetizer. Vegan and Gluten Free.
1. Place cubed eggplant in a large colander over your sink. Sprinkle with salt and leave for 30 minutes or so.
2. Heat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Pat eggplant dry and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle about 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and give the eggplant a good toss to coat. Spread in one layer. Cover with foil and roast in the heated oven for about 15 minutes or until eggplant is tender.
3. While the eggplant is roasting, in a saucepan, heat 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil over medium heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add chopped onions and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring regularly until fragrant but not browned.
4. Add Pomì Chopped Tomatoes and ½ cup water. Season with salt, then add pepper, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir to combine.
5. Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cover and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
6. Add roasted eggplant to the simmering sauce. Stir to combine. Let simmer another 15 minutes or so, stirring occasionally (add a little bit of water if needed).
7. Remove from heat. Stir in white vinegar, fresh parsley and mint.
8. Transfer eggplant bruschetta to a serving bowl. Serve warm or at room temperature with crostini or toasted bread. Enjoy!
