Before BTD and GTD, I ate eggplant stir fried with onion and or garlic, parsley or basil, and origano or thyme or mint. I used to stir fry it in a non sticking pan till a little bit golden. With fried or grilled slices slices, mozzarella and tomato sauce reheat as a veggie lasagna for twenty or thirty minutes in the owen and voila eggplant parmigiana. If eggplant seems bitter to your taste, salt the eggplant pieces or slices for half an hour and discard the water pouring from them.
For those who must avoid eggplant these recipes are good also with zucchini.
enjoy Maria Giovanna

a friend used to dip slices in olive oil with chopped garlic (lots) and then broil them...I'm not saying I could make them that good, but they were good.

I used to like moussaka(greek eggplant and lamb casserole) but it has tomato paste in it. I'll have to try it with nomato sauce some time. Another way is to slice it thin, brush it with olive oil, sprinkle it with fresh ground pepper and seasalt and broil it.

Grilled Eggplant slices (1/4 inch thick). Marinate in Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, crushed garlic and anchovie paste for 4 hours outside of fridge. Yum!!!!

Now, since BTD I will have to come up for an altenative for the vinegar and experiment a little this summer.

Some people disagree with the flavour - So lightly sea salt the slices and wipe off 20min later before cooking.
As you would do with proper Cucamungers. {as my niece would say anyway}

Whats that dip made with a puree of Grilled Eggplant - Oh YeaH: Baba Ganouj.

The Japanese make a "Nukamiso Pickle" with young ones, and the long thin varieties. Contrary to the name they don't use Miso with this pickle. Its packed in a box with Sea Salt, Rice Bran [Any Bran would do], half mug of Unfiltered Sake [OR Homedade Beer] & and the lid is weighted to force the air out.
The above mixture when blended looks like White Miso paste, hence the name.

I do a similar thing to get the bitter taste out of the eggplant.
peal, slice,sea  salt and put in a strainer in layers then put a plate on top and weight down {I do this is the sink} with something heavy and leave for an hour. then rinse.

There are eggplants the size of small eggs. Get a dozen tender ones, preferably same size, wash well, trim the stalk but dont remove it completely. Make a cross until 1/4-1/2 way down the veg. Keep them in cold water to prevent browning.

Now prepare the stuffing. Tradionally the recipe calls for dals (black, bengal and tuvar), but you can sub with almonds and any other nuts. Raw rice, dried chillies, asofoetida, coriander seeds, turmeric and salt. Fry all these lightly in oil and once cool, powder them coarsely.

Stuff the spice mixture into each eggplant gently but firmly and gently press the quarters together.

Heat oil and fry these stuffed eggplants until cooked. Very tasty and something I'm oh-so looking forward to in May when my black dot period will end for eggplants .

Another favourite recipe is to roast eggpplants, remove skin, mash them well. Heat oil, burst mustard seeds, add dried chilles, asofoetida, curry leaves and the mashed eggplants, turmeric and salt. Saute well. Add tamarind water (or, plain water and then lemon juice after cooking) just enough to cover ingredients. Boil for a couple of minutes. Thicken with rice flour if necessary.

And yet another one with roasted eggplants: remove skin, mash. Roast dals as above (or nuts of choice), dried chillies, and asofoetida. Add a bit of tamarind, salt and ginger and grind the whole lot into a thick paste. You can use this method for any vegetable actually. Goes very well mixed with hot rice & ghee.

yes it is, but more sweet (I forgot the sugar, 1 T. can use agave) and is served chilled with baguette. Orrrr, with compliant crackers.
