Roasted Eggplant Zucchini Noodles with Blood Orange & Black Currant Dressing

Featuring: Seven Barrels Black Currant Balsamic Vinegar and Seven Barrels Blood Orange Olive Oil

Ingredients

  • 1 medium Italian eggplants
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon Seven Barrels Blood Orange Olive Oil, divided
  • 1-2 tablespoons Seven Barrels Black Currant Balsamic Vinegar
  • Sea salt, to taste, plus more for serving
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup dry quinoa
  • 1 zucchini, spiral sliced or made into ribbons with a wide peeler
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grainy Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup pomegranate arils or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • ½ cup feta cheese, for garnish
  • Handful fresh mint, roughly chopped, for garnish

Instructions

Preheat oven to 475ºF.

Cut eggplant into 1-inch cubes. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss eggplant with ¼ cup Seven Barrels Blood Orange Olive Oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until browned and tender, about 25 minutes. Toss with 1-2 tablespoons Seven Barrels Black Currant Balsamic Vinegar and chopped parsley.

Meanwhile, bring salted water and quinoa to a boil in a medium saucepan. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let steam with cover on for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

For the dressing, in a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of Seven Barrels Blood Orange Olive Oil, lemon juice, grainy Dijon mustard, honey, and ground pepper. Season with salt, to taste.

Squeeze any excess water out of the zucchini noodles with a tea towel or paper towels. Add 1 tablespoon of Seven Barrels Blood Orange Olive Oil in a large sauté pan and cook the noodles for about 2-3 minutes, toss in the cooked quinoa and mix together.

Pour the dressing over the cooked quinoa and zucchini; toss well to combine and transfer to a serving bowl. Top with roasted eggplant, pomegranate arils or cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and mint, to serve. Drizzle with an additional small amount of dressing, and additional salt and pepper to taste, if desired.

Serves 2.

PSA: We’ve got a bad case of hay fever.

Sorry, that was misleading. No, we don’t have runny noses or itchy, watering eyes. We’re just full blown addicted to hay rides, and everything they entail: crunchy leaves, picturesque countrysides, apple picking, thick sweaters, and cozying up to warm bowls of Instagram-worthy meals afterwards. Blame October. But honestly? This is one brand of hay fever we long for year-round. Especially when we’ve got Seven Barrels White Balsamic & Tuscan Herb Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the kitchen cabinet. That unbeatable pair makes chowtime the main event no matter what it follows… a hayride, a corn maze, or a game of touch football. Whip up some of this comfort food, and be forewarned: you’ll be singing “You Give Me Fever” to Seven Barrels in no time. Are you shouting, “SHOW ME THE RECIPES!” Tom Cruise style, yet? Here they are…

Everyone knows that Spinach Artichoke Dip is the food of the gods. Tender artichoke hearts, tangy feta, softened cream cheese, savory garlic, and bright red pepper flakes are enough to make Zeus himself come to earth in human form just for a bite. But add Seven Barrels White Balsamic & Tuscan Herb Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and the dip transcends earth itself—the flavor becomes cosmic. Serve with crispy pita chips, and you’ll be, well, in heaven.

Lost in a corn maze? Make the most of it and grab some ears to make this delectable Grilled Corn, Avocado & Tomatoes Dish with White Balsamic & Tuscan Olive Oil Dressing. Sometimes the simplest things are the best, and this recipe is evidence. Crisp sweet corn, creamy avocado, and perfectly juicy tomatoes unite with the mouthwatering flavors of Seven Barrels White Balsamic and Tuscan Olive Oil to make this simple dish a true standout.

Fragrant basil. Crispy shallots. Sweet yellow and red cherry tomatoes. Snappy green beans. Flavorful Dijon mustard. These all-stars all combine to make a salad unlike any salad you’ve had before—a.k.a. A salad you cannot get enough of. Yes, you read that right. Meet Green Bean and Tomato Salad with Basil-Shallot Vinaigrette. Make a good first impression, because you two are going to be friends for a long, long time. And witness another case in which Seven Barrels takes something simple to a whole new level. An unearthly level.
