Honey Baked Eggplant Wedges

Baked Honey Cinnamon Eggplant

This recipe was inspired by the post my friend Gwyneth wrote about her trip to Spain and the Tapas that she enjoyed whilst there. You can read about her experiences of Spanish food and drink here.

I was going to wait until my own eggplants were flourishing in the garden until I tried this recipe but it stuck in my mind and I had to give it a try immediately…

Enjoy the flavors of this dish as a side dish or as a lovely main for a meatless meal. Add some black rice, yogurt and fresh coriander to make it more filling, or simply serve with a salad.

    Yum, just finished eating an eggplant meal for my tea. Love it! Your recipe sounds great, Kyrstie! Thanks for sharing.

    What a delectably simple dish! I’m using eggplant so much more now that I live in Australia and this sounds like a scrumptious way to cook it. 🙂

    I love it Kyrstie! Such a simple and healthy way of cooking eggplant and with honey, I have never, ever tried the two together. My eggplant bushes are only 30cm high so I too, will have to buy one on the way home just to try this recipe. Thank you for sharing 😀 😀

    What a simple recipe. I may have to give eggplant a second chance.

      It is worth it Adelina, I have converted Mr Fresh to become a fan 🙂

    We happen to love eggplant and keep bees, so anything with honey in it is OK in our family. Pinning and making soon.
