Pasta alla Norma with oven roasted eggplant (30 minutes)

Pasta alla Norma with oven roasted Eggplant , I could lay into this dish right now. I used to go to Italy so often with my parents and have only the best memories of it. La dolce vita with lots of Pizza and Pasta . Today I would order the Pizza order it without cheese or just hope that there is one nearby. vegan pizza nearby. It is a real pleasure to see how much is happening on the vegan market and a new product is launched every second. Many dishes are already vegan by nature, such as this delicious Pasta that we cook together today. Not to mention that it is also really good for the soul. Especially with this dingy weather, I need soul food and that certainly includes every single one Pasta dish on this page belongs to it. I will also do something for Body, Mind & Soul this afternoon, because I am going to my dear friend Mischi’s Yin class. At this point I wish you a nice weekend with lots of tea, series, cuddling and vegan treats .

Today will be really challenging, because we need a pan, a pot of pasta and an oven. OMG! Ok, all kidding aside, this is actually Court totally simple and really, really tasty. In the classic version, the Eggplant not roasted in the oven, but usually made in a pan. However, the Eggplant itself really gobbles up a lot of oil and that’s why I like to make it in the oven with a little salt and a small amount of olive oil. This is pretty straightforward, and the dark purple fruit roasts away while I prepare the Pasta and prepare tomato sauce.

The tomato sauce is also really super easy to make with a little oil, garlic, onion, sun-dried tomatoes (or tomato paste), canned tomato chunks, Italian seasoning mix, pepper, chili, coconut blossom sugar, a pinch of salt and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Simmer briefly and prepare the pasta in parallel. Then all mixed together and served with vegan parmesan served. My mouth is watering again.

How healthy is actually eggplant?

All good news first, because the Eggplant is very low in calories and quite mild in taste. That is why it goes well with many different dishes and is especially popular in Mediterranean and Asian cuisine. Here again the most important facts summarized for you:

  • Consist of 93 percent water
  • Very low in calories with 17 Kcal per 100g
  • Rich in potassium
  • Rich in B vitamins and vitamin C

Normally, they usually devour huge amounts of oil when fried in a pan. That’s why roasting in the oven is a wonderful method that I also use with the Eggplant chickpea pan use.

TIP: Do not store too cool, that is best at about 10 degrees. Do not store next to tomatoes or apples, as they emit a ripening gas and eggplants react to it. Shelf life in the refrigerator up to 1 week.
