Recipe Notes

Meal Prep and Storage

  • To Prep-Ahead: Don't cut the eggplant until you are ready to roast, it will turn brown.
  • To Store: After being cooked, eggplant can be sealed in an airtight container and kept in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
  • To Freeze: Place in a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 3-4 months. Just note the texture will change slightly upon thawing.
  • To Reheat: Warm up leftovers in the oven or air fryer at 350°. A microwave can also be used but it won't be quite as crisp.
