How to Make Eggplant Toasts 

You know I like to keep my recipes with only 3 steps or less so here we go:

  1. Slice the eggplant into 1/2 inch slices vertically. Lay each slice on a parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet, spray the eggplant with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and ROAST (details below in the recipe).
  2. Make the white bean sauce in a mini food processor.
  3. Pop the eggplants out of the oven, load on the arugula, greens and white beans. Drizzle with the white bean sauce and garnish with orange zest and hemp seeds.

DONE!

Tips for Making Eggplant Toasts

You can use any leafy green veggie you’d like with this recipe but I find that arugula and mixed baby greens work best.

I suggest letting the eggplants cool for about 5 minutes before you load on the greens and beans before serving.

If you don’t like hemp seeds, which I used as a topping here, no worries. You can use any type of finely chopped nuts or seeds that you’d like. Have fun and get creative!

Now, let’s get to the recipe.


When you’re food shopping, try to buy organic ingredients. Here’s why I eat organic: The Benefits of Eating Organic.

Instructions

Eggplant Toasts

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Slice the eggplant into 1/2 inch slices lengthwise using a sharp knife. Lay the slices on the prepared baking sheet and spray or brush the top side with olive oil. Then, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and roast for 15 minutes or until the eggplant are golden brown and tender.

  3. Meanwhile, make the White Bean Sauce (recipe below.)

  4. Remove the eggplant from the oven and set aside for 5 minutes. Then, top with the arugula, mixed leafy greens and white beans. Pour the White Bean Sauce over each piece of eggplant and garnish with hemp seeds and orange zest. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and serve warm.

White Bean Sauce

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the onion in the olive oil for 5 minutes or until the onion sweats and is golden brown. Add the garlic, cook for another 2 minutes, stirring often. Add the white beans and cook for 1 more minute.

  2. Transfer the white bean mixture to a mini food processor and add the remaining ingredients and puree until smooth.
