Roasted Eggplant

Learned a lot about eggplant with this recipe! Scoring, salt and letting it sit. Delicious results letting the eggplant rest with the salt and roasting with the thyme. Enjoy.

Tip: Salt first for less oily eggplant. Eggplant soaks up oil like a sponge, but you can reduce its ability to absorb oil by salting the cut flesh and letting it sit for 30 min. or more. Then drain, pat dry, and proceed with cooking.
