Eggplant! I love eggplant. I rarely buy it because it is pricey, but if i ever get to the produce place, i buy some, generally the japanese variety which, imo, tastes better and has minimal seeds. I made some tonight by just marinading it in some shoyu, miso, and garlic powder and baking it at 400F in the oven, YUM!!!

how do you like yours? I have a couple other recipes i like with eggplant:

Creamy Creole Eggplant Casserole | recipe from FatFree Vegan Kitchen

Curried Eggplant, Lentil, and Quinoa Burgers with Onion-Pepper Relish | recipe from FatFree Vegan Kitchen


the first of these two i have made many many times, the second just once. both winners.

have you tried the white eggplant? really mild flavor and no seeds really. the skin is so tender when you cook it, so you dont even have to peel it. i like it breaded and sauteed. yummmmm.

no, never have, though i saw some at the produce place. I never peel my eggplant though, unless the recipe specifically calls for it. I will have to try the white ones one of these days
