Eggplants are one of the most beautiful vegetables and almost every time I see one I give in to the temptation to bring it home and transform it into something delicious. That’s what’s so great about this big purple and shiny vegetable, it is so versatile and can be made into a variety of dishes, even as a meat substitute. If your kids are wary of trying an eggplant recipe, bring them into the kitchen. Once they see and feel (and taste!) an eggplant and all it’s loveliness, they too will give in to temptation and be begging for more. Here are some of our favorite eggplant recipes for everyone to enjoy.
