Broiled Eggplant Sandwich with Caramelized Onions and Goat Cheese

  • 1-2 small eggplant
  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • goat cheese
  • humus
  • lettuce
  • sliced tomato
  • tomato sauce
  • pita bread (just about any type of bread will work)

Cut the eggplant into slices. Drizzle with 1-2Tbsp olive oil or until the eggplant is coated (this may require more than 2 Tbsp). Lay the eggplant on a baking sheet. I like to cover my baking sheet in foil so the clean up is easier. Sprinkle each slice with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Broil in the oven at 400 degrees F until browned. This usually takes about 10 minutes. Once the eggplant is browned take it out of the oven flip the slices and repeat.

While the eggplant is cooking slice the onion. Heat 1 Tbsp of olive oil in a pan at medium heat. Add the onion and cook at medium heat for about a minute while stirring. Then reduce the heat to low and let the onions cook for the next 15 minutes or until the onions have caramelized. Stir on occasion. They will be done when they have browned.

Once the eggplant and onions have cooked I make the sandwich. I open the pita bread and spread humus on one side before layering on the eggplant, onions, lettuce, tomato and goat cheese. Enjoy with tomato sauce!
