Fire Roasted Eggplant

Ever wondered how to bring out the smoky taste and unique flavor of eggplant? Checkout my easy stove top oasted eggplant here.

Prepare The Gas Range


Line the base of a gas range with  aluminum foil making sure to keep the burners exposed.

Turn On The Flame

Turn the burners on medium heat and  place eggplants directly on an open flame. I usually put 2 eggplants on the larger burners and 1 on the smaller ones.



Roast eggplants for about 15-20 minutes turning every 5 minutes or so using a pair  of tongs. You will know that it is fully roasted when the skin is burnt and flaky  and the flesh is soft.


Cool, Peel & Drain

Transfer eggplants to a plate and when  cool enough to handle, peel them under cold running water by gently removing the black skin making sure to keep the flesh intact.
