Excellent Eggplant Dishes for Meatless Monday

June 9, 2014

Eggplants big and small, lavender and deep purple, Japanese and Italian are making an appearance at the market.  This summer vegetable is mildly flavored which means it pairs well with other bold ingredients.  Eggplant can be batter and fried, cooked on the grill, or roasted in the oven.  Because of its versatility, eggplant can be found in everything from eggplant parmesan to sauteed eggplant with ginger and soy sauce. Even though these recipes are missing meat, they are still hearty and satisfying.
