recipes for eggplant

The other day as I was going through the checkout line in the grocery store with my egggplant, the cashier said “oh wow eggplant.. I’ve always wanted to cook with it but don’t know what to make”. Eggplant is one of the vegetables in the store that not many people add to their cart because it’s a “foreign food”, meaning they don’t know what to do with it.

I love cooking with eggplant because it’s a great meat alternative in recipes. It has a great texture and lots of flavour. Eggplant is a hearty low-calorie plant substitute for meat in stews, soups and stir fries! These are my favourite eggplant recipes that are so easy to make and extra yummy (even my husband “the meat eater” loves them)!
