We’d all gather in the kitchen, watching Nanny slice, bread, and fry the purple nightshade as if she was performing some kind of miracle. Then, before the thing even had a chance to find it’s way to a plate, we’d devour it; no doubt burning the rooves of our mouths in the process. So now as an adult, who often finds herself with a garden full of eggplant, I try my best not to fry all of it.
Thus, today’s recipe.
In an attempt to reduce food waste, and to expand my toolkit of eggplant recipes, I came up with this simple dish. It is quick and easy to prepare. Plus, it’s perfect for your vegetarian and vegan friends, which I seem to be getting more and more of.
Try it out, and let me know what you think of it in the comments!
