Big Game Party Food: Grilled Eggplant Naan
BOSTON (CBS) – The Super Bowl is a certainly a big sporting event, but it’s also an excuse to throw a big party.
If you’re interested in changing up your menu this year and going beyond nachos and chicken wings, Paula Ebben got a great idea from the folks at Wilson Farm’s Kitchen.
Grilled Eggplant Naan
2-3 eggplant, cut in ½ inch slices
2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
½ pint grape tomatoes
1 Tbs. garlic, minced
½ lb. farmers cheese (or feta)
1 tsp. garam masala (or curry powder)
3 Tbs. pomegranate syrup
salt and pepper
WBZ-TV’s Paula Ebben reports
Lightly coat eggplant with olive oil, 2 Tbs. pomegranate syrup, and ½ tsp. garam masala. Grill until cooked all the way through.
Preheat oven to 350º
Meanwhile, heat 3 Tbs. olive oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Do not stir until onions start to brown, about 4-5 minutes. Continue cooking until onions are golden brown, stirring only to avoid sticking. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add tomatoes, remaining pomegranate syrup, remaining garam masala, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook together for 8 minutes. Place a thin layer of onion mixture on the flatbread, then a layer of eggplant. Sprinkle cheese on top.
Bake for about 8-10 minutes.
