Mediterranean Baked Eggplant with Crispy Chickpeas & Feta

I haven’t had eggplant in ages and boy will I never make that mistake again. This flavour bomb is an unreal side or main meal , topped with the crispy chickpeas and crunchy dukkha you’ll want the whole thing to yourself ( but sharing is encouraged also.)

Ingredients

1 eggplant halved

½ cup roasted chickpeas

½ cup crumbled feta

2 handfuls fresh chopped basil

salt, pepper

2 tsp cumin

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp teriyaki coconut aminos

2 tbsp balsamic

1 tsp chilli flakes

2 tbsp dukkah

 

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees
  2. Cut eggplant in half and then make slight cross sections with a knife
  3. Place olive oil, balsamic, coconut aminos, cumin, chilli, salt and pepper in each half and use hands to spread over the whole eggplant so everything is covered ( you want it all to absorb the flavour)
  4. Place in the oven for 20 minutes
  5. Remove from oven and add feta, basil and dukkah
  6. Place back into the oven for another 10-15 minutes ( until nice and golden and soft)
  7. Sprinkle with chickpeas and extra fresh basil and enjoy!
