Roasted Eggplant Bowl

This is a very basic healthy dish that can be easily modified with your favorite salt-free seasoning blends to give you some quick and easy meals with a bit of variety throughout the week. Try tossing it with your favorite Guiding Stars-rated pasta sauce or add in some fresh chopped tomatoes with a bit of basil for an Italian twist. For a more Mexican flair, add some beans, cumin and hot sauce. If you’re a fan of more Eastern cuisines, add a couple tablespoons of your favorite curry sauce.
