Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 people


  • 1 globe eggplant (about 1 pound)
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 4 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • fine sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves for serving
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • lemon wedges for serving
  • 2 Tablespoons pomegranate seeds for serving


  • Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.
  • Cut eggplant into 1/2" thick diagonal slices. Toss in a bowl with turmeric and 2 Tablespoons olive oil. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper.
  • Grill eggplant until tender and charred in spots. Alternatively, you may roast eggplant slices at 425 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until tender.
  • In a medium bowl, combine spinach leaves and mint leaves. Drizzle with 1 Tablespoon olive oil.
  • In a small bowl, combine yogurt and garam masala, plus a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Place warm grilled eggplant directly on top of the greens. This will help wilt them just enough.

To Serve

  • Spread yogurt mixture on the bottom of a serving platter. Top with greens. Place still-warm eggplant on top of the greens. Serve with lemon wedges and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
