  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a colander, toss eggplant with 2 teaspoons salt. Let stand 30 minutes. Arrange in a single layer on a clean kitchen towel and roll up tightly to extract excess water; transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Toss with 1 tablespoon oil, and garlic; and season with pepper. Bake until golden and cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel garlic cloves.

I thought the flavors were wonderful together. Easy to make and I have to admit I have not eaten eggplant often because it was not eye appealing. When I make this recipe next time I will use less radicchio and slice it thinner or shave it.
