Description

This vegetarian eggplant dish is one best served cold. Prepare the eggplant the day before serving. The eggplant is roasted and drizzled with a white wine vinegar dressing and left in the refrigerator overnight to marinate. Homemade italian herb crackers pair beautifully with the eggplant. Made with an herb blend including thyme, rosemary, and basil these crackers are crisp and savory. Before baking, be sure to brush each cracker with milk and sea salt for a golden crunchy exterior.
