Bake vegetables within 25 to 30 minutes until ready, which can be checked with a fork. Open the oven periodically and turn the eggplant over with a fork from side to side for even baking. Ready well-baked eggplant shriveled and fork teeth freely pass through its skin and easily enter the pulp. If the eggplants are fully prepared, remove them from the oven and let cool directly in the baking sheet. Then cover the table with plastic wrap, put the cooled eggplant on it and carefully, peeling off the skin with your hands and a knife.
