{companions} roasted eggplant

I have always wanted to paint a room, or maybe just a wall the color of eggplant. The color of eggplant is the most beautiful deep purple with hints of blue and brown. I can just imagine a small room with windows and this high gloss eggplant paint. Artwork would look amazing. Maybe I will just have to settle for some great napkins or just a great dish of roasted eggplant. Isn't nature amazing? Colors of eggplant, pumpkin, beets... really amazing!

roasted eggplant by ann west [an amy twomey inspiration]

1 or 2 eggplants
olive oil
red pepper flakes
sprinkle of parm

slice the eggplant and let it sweat on paper towels. Oil your baking sheet and drizzle oil on the eggplants. Sprinkle with the spices and roast in a 400 degree oven for 20-30 min. or until done - the eggplant should be brown and crispy.

Amy turned me onto roasting the eggplant - thanks Amy. I had this with rice but I think a side of roasted tomatoes along with it would be awesome!
