INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375°F. For the eggplant, mix Za’atar Seasoning, garlic powder, black pepper and salt in a small bowl; set aside. Place eggplant halves cut-side up on a parchment lined shallow baking pan. With the tip of a sharp knife, carefully score the flesh deeply in a criss-cross pattern, being careful not to cut through to the skin.
  • 2 Season cut-sides of eggplant evenly with seasoning mixture. Drizzle evenly with olive oil. Roast 45 to 50 minutes or until eggplant is golden brown and tender.
  • 3 Meanwhile, mix all Za’atar Yogurt Sauce ingredients in a medium bowl with a wire whisk until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • 4 Drizzle roasted eggplant halves with Za’atar Yogurt Sauce and additional olive oil, if desired. Sprinkle with pomegranate arils and cilantro to serve.
