cut slits into eggplant and roast in oven on 350-400 until skin turns black and eggplant caves in on itself. this takes a long ass time so do it first

Ugh ok so this failed miserably. Taste was right, but the texture of the soft onion + soft tomato was real off putting. Next time I'll purée those both first and use more eggplant :/
