Broiled Eggplant with Tomatoes & Lentils

Broiled Eggplant, Tomatoes & Lentils

Some foods make me feel like a cat; I just wanna curl up around the bowl & purr. My recipe for Broiled Eggplant, Tomatoes & Lentils is just such a food. It’s easy to cook, hearty, healthy & a family pleaser. Awesome with some hearty bread, in a Buddha Bowl, as one of many appetizers & salads before a dinner party or in a small bowl with just you, the couch & a good book.


Products from

Broiled Eggplant with Tomatoes & Lentils


2 Medium Eggplants

2-3 Tablespoons Canola Oil

2 cups dry Lentils

1 Onion, chopped

2 Bay Leaves

3-4 Tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Sea Salt & Pepper

1/2 Teaspoon Coriander

1 Teaspoon Cumin

3-4 Tomatoes

4 Garlic Bulbs



Set oven to Broil.


Dice Eggplants, pour about 2 Tablespoons of Canola Oil over them (Olive Oil will smoke) & place in a baking sheet. Broil for about 20 minutes or until golden on all sides. Stir occasionally.


While Eggplant is broiling, heat water in medium sized saucepan. Rinse lentils & add to water when boiling. Add lentils, chopped Onion & Bay Leaves to water, return to boil then reduce heat to low & simmer for 25 minutes or until lentils are cooked. I prefer my cooked lentils to still retain a little bit of chew.


Drain lentils & onions, removing Bay Leaves & transfer to a medium sized mixing bowl. Add Red Wine Vinegar, 3-4 Tablespoons Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper, Coriander & Cumin.


Slice Tomatoes into wedges, toss on a baking sheet with a Tablespoon of Canola Oil & Garlic Cloves & Broil for 5-6 minutes or until brown. Stir & broil for another minute or two.


Stir Broiled Eggplant into Lentils. Platter up on a serving tray & spoon Broiled Tomatoes & Garlic on Top. Add additional Sea Salt.


Ta Da! You’re Done!


NOTE: Great with a few sprinkles of Crushed Red Pepper &/or some Greek Yogurt.
