Spread a spicy tahini mixture on thinly sliced eggplant, bake briefly, and wrap around cantaloupe bites. Ta-da! You’ve made an easy yet elegant summer appetizer that packs a flavor punch. Pop a Spicy Melon Bite in your mouth and notice the sensations:
Smooth, slightly sweet eggplant
Creamy umami burst from the spicy tahini spread
Refreshing cantaloupe at the center
It’s summertime on a toothpick!
My plant-based update to the classic prosciutto-wrapped melon is healthier and cheaper than the original.
