Eggplants

Eggplants have a meaty texture and an absorbent flesh that soaks up the flavors in which it is cooked, while still retaining its sweet, earthy flavor.

Quick idea No. 1: Roast whole eggplant until soft. Scoop flesh into bowl and season with olive oil, ground pepper, crushed garlic, and herbs. Serve with crackers and Greek yogurt seasoned with dill.

Quick idea No. 2: Brush slices of eggplant with olive oil and grill until tender. Season with chopped basil or parsley. Fill a sandwich with grilled eggplant, onion, tomato, and garlic mayonnaise.
