These aubergines are gorgeous to look at and delicious to taste. On top of that, they are ideal for the holidays and meals with guests because they fit in most of the dietary styles out there – keto, low-carb, gluten-free… you name it. And if you want another reason to opt for this recipe, it requires very little human effort. If the pomegranate is too much of a trouble for you, you can buy frozen pomegranate seeds. It’s less tasty and crunchy, but it will do the job just fine. Also, here, I have used white aubergines because their skin is thicker than other aubergines: this allows the aubergine halves to keep their shape after baking.

To prepare these pomegranate roasted aubergines, start with halving and scarring the aubergine flesh (do not skip this step, as aubergine tends to “explode” when baked). Season the halves and put in the oven for 30 minutes. While the aubergine roasts, you can prepare the yogurt dressing and preparing the pomegranate seeds. Finally, when the aubergine is cooked, you just need to add the final seasoning and garnish.

Steps

1
Done
40 minutes

Roast the aubergine

Rinse the aubergines, then halve them lengthwise without removing the stem and the end. With a sharp knife, make incisions in the middle of the aubergine flesh (be careful not to pierce the skin) to form a diamond-like shape. Transfer the 4 halves to a baking dish covered in parchment paper, cut side up. Spray or brush with olive oil. Finally, season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Put in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of the aubergine. The surface should be golden-brown.
