    Help - Need Eggplant Recipes

    Got Eggplants coming out of our ears....what to do with them, besides grilled, Eggplant Parmesan and Ratatouille I've asked a few people, even a Famous Chef from Taiwan disguised as a Facility Technician , but it seems that not to many people eat Eggplant. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Re: Help - Need Eggplant Recipes

    I love eggplant! one of my fave veggies. so here is my best eggplant dish

    eggplant sliced into thin rounds
    zuc not as thin rounds
    onion thin rounds (sweet if possible)
    button shrooms quartered
    minced garlic
    butter or olive oil
    butter bottom of casserole dish, layer in turn 1/2 of eggplant, zuc, onion, shroom, garlic then repeat. cover w/ lid. bake in 350 oven for 1 hr or until veggies are done. I don't use any liquid cuz the veggies make their own. sometimes I will put sliced tomato in also. I finish off with asiago, or Parmesan sprinkled on top of each serving. serve w/ crusty french or italian bread.

    remove the purple rind --its bitterish -- then cut into long thin silces -- use it to make lasagna use the
    eggplant much the same way you would use lasagna noodles .-- sauce the pan bottom- then layer it thus = eggplant silces , shredded cheese , meaty spaghetti type sauce -- top off at end with cheese * bake at 350 * in a lasagna type pan till the cheese on top is golden colored = normally about 1 hour ,but check at 30 min -- a lot depends upon how close your pan is to the heater elements .

    you can also use zucchini to do this with too

    Re: Help - Need Eggplant Recipes

    heres another for you. this is right up there with hummus.
    recipe calls for roasted whole eggplant, charring the skin & peeling it, but I never did that. I don't like dealing w/ the charred eggplant too messy. although for this recipe I did peel it.
    cube eggplant into about 1" squares
    steam or simmer til soft but not mushy.
    2-3 large garlic cloves
    1 -2 lemons, juiced, (depends on preference)
    1/3 c tahini
    1/4 c olive oil
    salt to taste
    sprinkle w/ cumin & fresh parsley.
    use it as a dip for pita bread, or a spread for a sandwich.
    all my recipes are "to taste" so play around with it. I like lots of garlic, & I also put cayenne in mine for a little heat. serve cold or warm.
    blend all ingredients in blender to make a smooth
    use as a dip for pita brea

    Let me look through my eggplant recipes.
    Ahh, here it is.
    Take one eggplant slice it lengthwise into 1/4 inch wide slices.
    Place on a wet board and salt.
    Place board with eggplant outside in sun for 6 hours.
    Check for tenderness.
    Remove eggplant from the board and let rest for 30 minutes.
    Eat the board!

    I hate eggplant!!!

    I love eggplant too, but am very challenged at cooking. I can make enchiladas, tacos(sort of) and fried eggplant. Got a quick, easy recipe off the web. Peel abd cut an eggplant(or like me 2). Slice it and put them in salted water. THEN 1 bowl with cracked, beaten eggs, 1 bowl with plain(or seasoned if you wish) bread crumbs. Frying pan gets 6-8 tablespoons of oil(goes quick or use as much oil as you wish). Eggplant soaks up oil so go easy. Dip slices in egg, coat in bread crumbs, fry till tender and done, drain and enjoy.While last slices are cooking, toss left over eggs, crumbs and put bowls in diswasher. Should not be much oil left in pan, dump it and put frying pan in dish washer. Eat as you go, keep them warm or eat later. Wipe area with paper towel and pig out. Super easy, quick and good...

    I make an eggplant pie in the Summer. I pre bake a pie shell a bit after sautéing sliced eggplant and onion in olive oil and layering with juicy summer tomatoes,fresh basil,and Parmesan cheese. Bake the pie until the crust browns up. This is good even at room temperature.
