3 Tbsp. marinara sauce
1 Tbsp. lemon juice, plus zest of 1/2 small lemon, divided
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 small (14-oz) eggplants, each quartered lengthwise in wedges, stems removed
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
1 Tbsp. finely crumbled feta cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. In a small bowl, whisk together the marinara sauce, lemon juice, oil, garlic, and cinnamon. Arrange the eggplant wedges, skin side down, on an unbleached parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Generously brush the flesh of the eggplant wedges with the marinara mixture.
  2. Roast the eggplant wedges until cooked through and soft, about 30 minutes.
  3. Transfer the wedges to a platter. Sprinkle with the parsley, mint, feta, and lemon zest, and serve.
