This mom loves to cook

Hello! I'm Deirdre and I'm a stay at home mom to two boys. Cooking for a 6 and 4 year old- day in and day out can be the best job in the world, also the most frustrating. Trying to create not only kid friendly but husband and mom friendly meals is a challenge that I've readily accepted! My Foodie Mom blog is a record of the different recipes that I've tried in the kitchen, pictures of my ventures, and cool tricks I've picked up along the way. Cheers!

Roasted Eggplant with Feta

This was a lovely Meatless Monday dish I made. Served with tubule and home made pita chips. 

  • 1 medium- large eggplant
  • salt and pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • italian seasoning 
  • crumbled feta
Wash eggplant and slice into about 1/2 inch discs.

Lay flat on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. 

Let sit for 20-30 minutes. This will draw out some of the bitter taste. 

Pat eggplant down with paper towels to get rid of the bitter juice.

Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt-pepper- italian seasoning

Bake for 20 minutes at 400.

Flip eggplant sprinkle with feta, and bake for another 20 or 
until tender and cooked through. 

I thought it was amazing just like this- then my husband took the leftovers, stuck them in the food processor and made some sort of baba ganoush concoction. Whipped together a batch of homemade pita chips, and it was seriously so good. Cheers!
