Meatless Monday Recipe: Roasted Eggplant

As I take baby steps toward a primarily plant-based diet, I’m trying to do a couple meatless meals each week. Dinner tonight was one of those meals, and since I had a large lunch, I wanted something lighter for dinner. I adapted recipes for roasted eggplant with garlic cumin yogurt and Martha Stewart’s roasted eggplant with basil (follow her roasting instructions) by making the yogurt with ras el hanout, a delicious and fragrant Moroccan spice blend. I also seasoned the eggplant with garlic salt and smoked paprika prior to roasting and garnished with fresh parsley and mint. The result was a slightly smoky flavor with a fresh, cooling finish –  very satisfying!
