Roasted eggplants with sweet and sour tomatoes

Method

  • Preheat oven to 200* C (390* F) Fan.
  • Cut the eggplants in half, lengthwise. Remove their stem and score them all over, in a crisscross manner using a sharp knife. Make sure you don’t rip or tear their skin.
  • Add half of the olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Rub all over with your hands to coat.
  • Transfer to a baking pan lined with parchment paper, cut side down.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, until they soften.
  • Remove from oven and flip the eggplants over, cut side up. Use a spoon to push on the flesh to create an indentation.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Finely chop the onion and garlic and add them to the pan. Sauté for 2 minutes, until they soften and turn light golden.
  • Add the tomato paste, sugar, salt and pepper. Sauté for 1 minute.
  • Deglaze pan with balsamic vinegar, remove from heat and transfer contents to a bowl.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and add them to the bowl along with the raisins. Mix and divide the mixture over the eggplants. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
  • Add the water to the pan and bake again for 15 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven, sprinkle with finely chopped parsley and serve.
