How do you feel about eggplant? Do you love it, hate it.. or do you want to like it but don’t know what to do with it?
I personally love eggplant and have been bringing lots of it home from the market lately. The market I’ve been shopping at has an abundance of eggplant right now, in every shape, size and color. I’ve seen gorgeous deep purple Italian eggplant, long, skinny, almost seedless Japanese eggplant and pretty light purple (some striped) eggplant that I’ve only seen in the summertime. I’ve also got my eye on and am intrigued by some white eggplant I keep spotting…I’m afraid they’re going to disappear before I get my hands on them!
So what to do with all this eggplant? Good question. I normally slice up my eggplant, bread it and bake it into classic Eggplant Parmagiana or roast it with other summer vegetables into an Italian caponata and serve on crusty bread.
