I buy eggplant (aubergine) about once a week. Usually I just sauté it with bell peppers. Sometimes I bread it and fry it. And sometimes I make it the main entrée in the form of eggplant parmigiana!

Tomatoes sound like an interesting variation! I will try that.
They are meaty and healthy…I love them for their versatility. Even add them to dals and mash them after roasting to prepare Bharta.

@Vivaci mmm that looks good. Yes they are very healthy. My daughter had 3 autoimmune problems as a teen. When she would start suddenly craving a food she had no interest in before I would research as much as I could to find out the healing properties. I got a coupon on the back of a cash register receipt for a free eggplant at a grocery store. So I got the eggplant and cooked it & she loved it. She was cooking 3 big eggplant every week…she found a Chinese recipe for stewed eggplant. And we had it cooked other ways too. I knew it had some kind of healing property. Checked all the books that I had and couldn’t find out what healing it had for her. Went to the library and scoured through nutrition and health books. Found one that said eggplant has a chemical in it good for the brain & seizures. She had developed a seizure disorder when she was 12 and this was a couple years later that she was wanting to eat it nearly every day.
@cherokeepatti 🥺🤗 Poor girl…Hope she’s fine now, Patti. This even I didn’t know(good for brain n to combat seizures). Really?

All I know is that it’s rich in iron, and I have iron deficiency, so it helps.

Tell her to try this recipe then..she might love it.

There are some more indian recipes for cooking eggplant at the bottom of that page. 🤗
A local Italian place has small lightly breaded bits of egg plant as an available pizza topping, the best egg plant parm I've had, and a side something like this. Its the only time I get it as no one else in my house cares for it no matter how its prepared.
@Stillwaiting Sounds delicious 😋 That’s authentic Italian pizza….it’s v common to put eggplant slices on pizza in Italy.

I know not many people like eggplant…lol…such a pity, right? It’s so easy to prepare and tastes better than chicken.

I make a Persian chicken stew called Bademjan and it has chicken, eggplants, & tomatoes in it…very good with saffron rice. I have also had Syrian eggplant stew and it was good.

@Vivaci what I only have one what kind of shit talk is that are you ok
Funlov · M
@Vivaci your a little high on your self come down is that the shit you say when people joke with you or you don’t know what a joke is
Funlov · M
@Vivaci your the kind that gets blocked for saying that shit now I don’t like you much now not today anyway
My mom makes this and I can’t get enough . It’s so good. She adds peppers to it as well.
@submissivelittlewoman That sounds divine. 🥴 I will try with peppers next time. 🤗
DrWatson · 70-79, M
@submissivelittlewoman I often combine peppers with eggplant, too!
SwampFlower · 26-30, F
Breaded and deep fried 🤠
Omg yes…add some garlic salt to the breaded mixture…🥴@SwampFlower
Appears like a slice of heaven. Reading below, it's veggie.... but I'm guessing beef would work in this dish. It's surprising how much colouring, in food groups, gives to the flavours and spice of a dish. Oh ideas, thank you.
It goes well with beef too…especially if you’re stir frying it. Just make sure you add the aubergine when the beef is partially cooked. Add olive oil generously whilst cookin… @thewindupbirdchronicles
@Vivaci Thank you.... I'm very generous in my helpings of olive oil, so the tip is good. 🙏
LunarOrbit · 56-60, M
That looked familiar.
Aubergine….I had to google. Then I realized thats eggplant.

My mom made that sometimes. It was delicious…but she would make a tonne of it and we would have to eat it for days.

Enjoy. :)
@LunarOrbit Thank you…This is the perfect season for cooking eggplants, Lunar. Idk why but they taste better in winters. ☺️
Mellowgirl · 31-35, F
I need to learn how to pick them better and how to cook them last time my meal was a little flavourless.
Mellowgirl · 31-35, F
@Vivaci I used virgin olive oil... The quality stuff.
They were lightly browned but I think just flavourless
@Mellowgirl noooo…don’t cook in extra virgin olive oil…it won’t taste good. Use pomace-olive oil or regular cooking oil for that.

And add some red onions and garlic to hot oil, then after they’re translucent, you add the cubed eggplants and chopped tomatoes. Add salt and spices. Cover and let it simmer for 15 mins. Mix in between.
Mellowgirl · 31-35, F
@Vivaci pahaha that's why I'm going wrong lol
Rutterman · 46-50, M
Damn. Looks and sounds veddy good. I'm a big fan of eggplant, tomatoes, and garlic bread. 🥴
It’s so delicious, babeh…you’ll lick my fingers. 🥴

I didn’t know you like it too. 😇 Hot Damn….yesssss! 💃😌@Rutterman
Rutterman · 46-50, M
@Vivaci Lol. I don't doubt it. 😄

Oh yeah, good stuff. 😋 🕺
Degbeme · 70-79, M
Aubergine doesn`t come into this house. 🤢
Degbeme · 70-79, M
@Vivaci So who cooks it for you? 🤔😬 *runs*
@Degbeme Excuse me? 🤨
Degbeme · 70-79, M
@Vivaci The maid? 🤔
DragonFruit · 61-69, M
My sister makes something like that ...it's called caponata.
@DragonFruit Oh yeah…it’s very similar to this, Dragon.

I think it goes v well as a side dish whenever I’m entertaining guests….
Matt85 · 36-40, M
That does look good. Is it veggie?
@Matt85 yup…. Eggplant and tomato
Matt85 · 36-40, M
@Vivaci Awesome!
jshm2 · 41-45, M
That looks fucking awful.

Not saying that because I hate aubergine, and the people who cook them, should be cooked alive. But that seriously looks like something you've ate already, vomited, and have then plated just to get a reaction.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@jshm2 what are you about 13 years old?
@jshm2 Lol! Ok jealous cat…
@cherokeepatti I feel sorry for such blind people who can’t see a good pic for what it is. Sounds like Marmee…
Spumoni · 46-50, M
Yummmy, yummy, in my tummy
The king of vegetables…☺️ @Spumoni
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
It's called eggplant here. Now days it's very expensive here. Glad you enjoyed it. Unfortunately I simply can't afford it. 😞
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@DeWayfarer do you live on a coast?
DeWayfarer · 61-69, M
@cherokeepatti close to one. 40 miles from the west coast. Nothing costs less than a 1.00 a pound here vegetable wise.
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
@DeWayfarer yeah that’s why. Everything is more expensive near large cities and coastal areas.
@BloviatingBuffoon It’s so versatile and tasty, right?

I even add it to my dals…takes the flavor an extra notch higher…

Happy NY 2023, btw…🤗✨💕
starmitz · 51-55, F
Come on over….🤗@starmitz
starmitz · 51-55, F
@Vivaci Ok 😃🤗
