Eggplants

I haven't decided yet what I'm going to do with these little eggplants. Maybe I'll just bake them with some olive oil and cheese... hmm. Eggplant is one of my favorite veggies!

Eggplant is one of our FAVORITES! You sound like a healthy eating person, so probably this won't work for you, but what I do is cut it into circles and marinate it in pepper, red chilly powder and salt and then deep fry them. Very tasty and I guess rather unhealthy too LOL.

I grill eggplant (marinaded 1st in an asian mixture) then layer it on shepherds bread along with mozarella, grilled bell peppers and onion and topping it with add'l asian marinade before putting the bread top on. yum.

However you prepare this sweet lil eggplants will be awesome, I'm sure!

Annie,

Being a nutritionist doesn't automatically make me a healthy eating person :P Well, I do try most of the time, but sometimes I enjoy fried eggplants! Ohh and fried zucchini! Yum. It's good once in a while.

Sherry,

Your description left me with my mouth watering :P

I had a relative make vegetarian lasagna out of it, in place of the noodles. I personally do not care for Eggplant, but that is just me.

Hope you can do something with it!

I have never tasted eggplant. What does it taste like, exactly?

Do you know of a good batter for eggplants, I have one to fry but never cooked one. I like the crunchy batter they have in the restaurants but don't know what to use. Would you use cornmeal or a mixture of something?

Anna S said...

Hmm... nope... don't know of anything like that. Normally we don't fry our eggplants, but bake or sautee or grill them. Yes, I should share some family recipes soon.

Your photo is beautiful!

I LOVE eggplant, too. One of our favorite ways to eat it can be found at http://makingahouseahome.blogspot.com/2006/10/eggplant-stew.html.

Dear Anna, I want to say hello to you from Croatia. I am married women, one 2 years old son; I have some carrier, but mostly, I am women and mother. I want to tell you that it is such a blessing to read your blog - seeing that there are so young and so clever, womanly girls who promote normal, healty, God's life.
unfortunatelly, growing up in comunist country, with atheist parents (comunism was ruining religion...) as a girl I was so unlikle you... So I can tell you - you go the right way! God healed me and my husband, but wouldn't it be better that we needed no so much healing...

Hold on! Love is worth all the efforts that you do!

Anonymous lady,

Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment! We're not as different as you might think. My mother grew up in a communist country as well, and I have encountered all the typical post-communist problems as I was growing up, specifically atheism. God healed me. I needed much healing. I still do. Yet I wouldn't trade even this pain for anything in the world; it was His perfect design for our lives to come closer to Him, despite all the difficulties.

Blessings to you!
