Char Siu Style Roasted Eggplant

5 from 1 reviews

This baked and caramelized Char Siu Style Roasted Eggplant Recipe has the deep sweet and savory flavors of Chinese roasted pork, but just happens to be super healthy!


  • 1 pound large eggplant (sliced into ½-inch pieces)
  • 2 stalk scallions (thinly sliced)


  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon five spice powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar


  1. Mix all ingredients for the marinade.
  2. Place eggplant slices in marinade and let sit for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 400, and place eggplant slices on a baking sheet covered in non-stick foil or parchment paper.
  4. Roast eggplant for 30-40 minutes, turning occasionally, until tender.
  5. Top with sliced scallions and serve immediately.


Char Siu Eggplant will keep in the fridge for 1-2 days, but is best when eaten immediately after cooking. If making this dish completely vegan, use mushroom based vegetarian oyster sauce.
