Preserved eggplants aren’t just a great antipasti or a snack, they’re also an excellent side dish for meat and fish. I like to make croutons with preserved eggplant slices. If you, like me, love winter barbecue, then this eggplant appetizer is just the perfect addition, trust me.

My recipe turned out to be quite hot, since it contains both garlic and chili pepper. You can adjust the amount of ingredients based on your heat tolerance. Before proceeding to the step-by-step recipe, I will tell you which spices go well with eggplant.

HERBS, SPICES AND OTHER THINGS YOU CAN ADD TO YOUR EGGPLANTS

  • Cilantro, soy sauce, coriander, sugar, garlic – why choose when you can use them all in one recipe. Try this combination. It’s mind blowingly delicious. Remember that soy sauce contains quite a lot of sodium, so you don’t need to use extra salt.
  • Teriyaki eggplants are another delicious way to cook this vegetable. Ground black pepper and sesame seeds are just what you need to complete their wonderful flavor.
  • Oregano, coriander, dill, parsley, dried tomatoes, basil, paprika and nutmeg – you can also try this herb and spice combination.
