Eggplant Recipe Roundup

Wednesday, January 8, 2020
Eggplant is a popular plant and is considered a fruit that is a delicious addition to any recipes or eaten alone as an appetizer.

The fruit considered eggplant takes on the flavors it's cooked in easily and used in so many recipes served in many cuisines all over the world.

Here is a complete roundup of all my favorite recipes I have made over the years using this versatile delicious fruit.

This roundup includes eggplant with pasta, chicken stacked with eggplant, on pizza and even as a hummus dip, just to name a few ways to prepare it.

Eggplant can be a fantastic substitute for meat in many vegetarian meals for those who refrain from eating meat.

The characteristics of this fruit have many edible tiny seeds in it and the skin is also edible so it doesn't have to be peeled, however, I do peel it on occasion.

Cooking can be done by grilling, steaming, stir-frying, pan-fried, deep-fried, roasted, stewed curried and pickled.

It can even be mashed to make dips or stuffed with rice and meats.

Eggplant can have a bitter taste and has a very sponge-like consistency but will be tender when cooked and absorbs the flavors it's cooked in easily.

One of the tips to get the bitterness out is salting the sliced fruit before cooking may remove the bitterness, that method has always worked for me.

There are so many health benefits in eggplant and you will even find recipes for eggplant on the Mayo Clinic web site!

Below you will find several ways to prepare it and strolling through my gallery of our favorites, I hope you find one you love, we love them all.
