Confession: I *love* burrata. I also love balls of fresh mozzarella, but burrata is SO much better! Never heard of it? Read this:
I love to add it as a topping to vegetables, steak, pizza – and so much more. With this recipe I have cooked it with eggplant and tomatoes – which gives it a very Italian flavor profile. The combination of the super soft cheese and the roasted veggies is SO good!
How to Make Roasted Eggplant with Burrata and Tomatoes
In a large bowl, combine olive oil, garlic paste, and dried oregano.
Cut an eggplant into chunks and add them to the bowl. Mix well. Transfer them to a baking dish, and season with salt and pepper.
Roast in a preheated oven for 15 minutes, then add some cherry tomatoes. Stir to combine, adding a little extra oil if the eggplant is looking dry.
Return to the oven for another 15 minutes or until the tomatoes start to burst. Tear apart a ball of burrata, and scatter it over the veggies.
Place the dish back in the oven for just a few minutes to allow the burrata to warm through, then serve, garnished with black pepper and finely sliced basil leaves.
