Last week I tried eggplant for the first time. I know it seems odd that I’ve never had it, seeing as how it’s a staple in so many households. But alas, I’ve been in the dark when it came to eggplant. But not so anymore!!
I found an easy recipe for eggplant parmesan over at Allrecipes and gave it a go. I found it quite easy to prepare. It was easy to peel, easy to cut, and I just tossed it with some gluten free bread crumbs, toasted it, and tossed it in with some spaghetti sauce and baked it with cheese.
I found it quite yummy, though the texture was different than what I was used to. It took on the taste of the sauce, so it was kind of odd to be eating the veggie instead of a pasta noodle! My husband on the other hand only ate it because he was hungry and there was nothing else to eat. I don’t think he’d like me to make it again for the main dish. So maybe next time I’ll find a side dish to prepare!
So have you ever eaten eggplant? If so, what’s your favorite way to prepare it?
