- 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
- 200g double brie, sliced
- 3 tsp tahini
- 2 tsp honey
- 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil

- Preheat the oven to 220°C. Put the eggplant into a large roasting pan. Combine 2 tablespoons of oil and garlic then spoon over the eggplant. Season and toss gently to coat. Spread evenly over the base of the pan. Roast for 20-30 minute until tender and golden. Set aside to cool.
