My favorite way to cook eggplant is great tasting and great for you (recipe here).
I still haven't harvested any eggplants from the eight sorry looking little plants in my kitchen garden (two words: flea beetles), but I haven't given up hope. I also haven't stopped thinking about this Easy Roasted Eggplant with Red Onion and Sweet Peppers I made over and over last summer.
You can't go wrong with roasting, and this has to be one of the least complicated—and the healthiest—ways to eat eggplant. Forget the cumbersome peeling, salting, and draining that so many eggplant recipes call for. Want to know how to roast eggplant? Just dice it up, toss it with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, and stick it in the oven. Additional vegetables are optional.
So simple, yet so flavorful. Exactly what summer eating should be.
No eggplants yet either? You'll find links to all my sweet and savory Less Fuss, More Flavor recipes in the Farmgirl Fare Recipe Index.
