Eggplant has become a very popular and versatile ingredient in many kitchens. Recipes include curries, pasta, dips and traditional moussaka.
This makes for a luxuriously rich vegetarian meal, prepared in only an hour thanks to a few shortcuts. Eggplant slices are dipped in egg and breadcrumbs, then baked instead of fried. The slices are layered with tomato pasta sauce, mozzarella and parmesan.
This is a traditional Punjabi bhurtha made with eggplant and tomato and seasoned with cumin, turmeric, garlic and ginger. Serve with fresh roti or naan.
This is very easy to make but - like any good moussaka - takes time. Serve with salad. Even meat eaters love this!
Fabulous Lebanese roasted eggplant dip. Delicious served with pita, vegetables and hummus as part of a meze platter, or just on its own.
A tasty and hearty vego pasta sauce that the meat eaters will love. I like to serve it with linguine but any pasta is fine. You can serve it mixed in with the pasta or as a sauce on top in each plate. Top with parmesan and more chopped basil if you want.
