- Preheat oven to 400 F.
- Cut the eggplant in half and then cut a criss-cross pattern into the flesh, not cutting all the way through.
- Place on a parchemnt lined baking sheet and drizzle both sides with olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Place flesh side down on the baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. Flip over and bake for another 5-10 minutes, unitl desired consistancy. I like my eggplant super soft.
- Let the eggplant cool and cut into chunks. Serve warm with your pita and falafel.
