Add it to salads, grain bowls, and pasta dishes. If you’re a little intimidated by cooking eggplant, this is the starter recipe for you!
Are you afraid to cook eggplant?
If so, you’re not the only one. People tell me all the time that they’re intimidated by the process of cooking this nightshade, and I can understand why.
If you cook eggplant incorrectly, it can turn out too oily or dry. It can burn quickly or not brown when you need it to. It can be bitter unless the vegetable is fresh from the garden.
Some of the most difficult ingredients can also be the most rewarding. I really love eggplant, so I’ve developed some recipes over the years that I now consider to be foolproof.
