Eggplant rollups is an amazing dish which can be served as hors d’oeuvre at a party or a lip smacking finger food at home. It is light, healthy,vegetarian,appealing,easy to assemble, can be prepared in advance and can be served  warm or cold. Eggplant slices are grilled in the oven,seasoned and spread with muhammara, ( walnut and red bell pepper spread ) and rolled up tight. You can get innovative with spreads, but personally I found this combination very delicious ….tangy,nutty,sweet and hot flavors all rolled in one.

Eggplant Rollups

Ingredients:

  • 1 large eggplant or 2 medium
  • salt and pepper
  • dry oregano and basil
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil for brushing
  • Muhammara for spreading

Method:

  1. Slice the eggplant lengthwise. One large eggplant should give about 8 slices. Rinse them and pat dry.
  2. Brush them on both sides with olive oil.
  3. Spread them on a baking sheet/grill plate.
  4. Season both sides with salt,pepper,dried basil and  oregano.
  5. Grill or bake in a preheated oven at 200º for 8-10 minutes or until eggplant slices are cooked.
  6. Remove in a flat plate.
  7. Spread a heaped teaspoon of the delicious walnut spread (Muhammara).
  8. Roll up the slices from one end to the other.
  9. Arrange in a serving platter.
  10. You can serve with toothpicks in a party or as a finger food at home.
  11. Enjoy….

    What a brilliant way of using an eggplant Ana! Love, love, love it. Has Elaine @ Foodbod seen this? She’s been featuring it all week long :). I’m going to have to make that paste for sure, it must pair beautifully with the eggplant. Happy weekend to you.

    These sound so delicious Ana! They would be great for a party as you suggested. Will the wonders of eggplant never cease?? 🙂 I’ve never thought to make my own muhammara before, but it would be another good use for the bottle of pomegranate molasses I have!

      Muhammara is one versatile dip worth making and storing in the fridge. If nothing else we can just dip a slice of plain bread on a tired day and have a delicious dinner. Eggplant as you said is a wonderful veggie. I have two more yummy recipes made with eggplant ready to be posted. Thank you dear for liking it ☺

    This sounds like a great way to serve eggplant, one that I hope to prepare this summer. Last year, my eggplants were crowded out by tomato plants that went Jurassic Park and took over the bed. I’ve a new planting system in mind for this season and your recipe will be a great way to prepare what is sure to be a bumper crop of eggplant — I hope! 🙂

  28. How creative and great recipe for eggplants. Although I love eggplant parm, I’d like to do something else with my eggplants. I do cook eggplants as an omelet by microwaving it for a few minutes to soften and then soak in egg and season and fry. Another good one is to cut the eggplants like french fries and then season them with garlic and saute them till they soften and then sprinkle with tamari or soy sauce. Delicious as an accompaniment to certain main dishes.
