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.
Fabulous Lebanese roasted eggplant dip. Delicious served with pita, vegetables and hummus as part of a meze platter, or just on its own.
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!
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.
