A delicious vegetarian salad that can be served warm and cold! Smoked Almonds and creamy, tangy goat cheese add texture and flavor to this delicious clean eating salad! For a vegan version, skip the cheese and use maple syrup instead of honey!
Whisk together the olive oil, cider vinegar, honey, smoked paprika, and cumin. Dab away any extra water that has beaded up on the eggplant and toss with the marinade. Stir in the garlic. Spread the eggplant on a large baking sheet, lined with parchment and slide onto a rack placed in the center of the oven.
Roast at 400°F for 40 minutes, or until very tender and slightly browned. (Stir every 15 minutes and check after 30 minutes to make sure it isn't burning.) Remove from the oven and cool slightly.
