  • 2 handfuls sungold tomatoes

To Make the Eggplants and Tomatoes

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to broil. Sprinkle eggplant flesh generously with kosher salt. Let sit for 30 minutes to draw out excess moisture and bitterness. Rinse and pat dry.

    Drizzle eggplants with oil. Arrange on baking sheet, flesh side up. On separate pan, drizzle oil over tomatoes. Put eggplant on top shelf and tomatoes on bottom shelf of oven. Broil until eggplants are slightly charred and softened and tomatoes are slightly bursting, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

  • Step 3

    Drizzle garlic-infused honey over everything, sprinkle on some sea salt and smoky urfa pepper. Add on some torn mint and toasted pine nuts. Serve at room temperature as is or with yogurt.
