Roasted Eggplant with Garlic Oil

I keep waiting for Eggplant to become the new Kale. Eggplant somehow has a poor reputation and does not get much play in the American culinary world, yet I adore it. There are so many great recipes for grilling and roasting eggplant to coax out its sweet and creamy goodness. This recipe roasts eggplant rounds with a coating of garlic oil and the result is a savory side dish with a slight kick.
