  • Tried something new

    Eggplant was on sale at my market this week, 2 for $1.

    I put a bit of oil in a pan and cooked slices (after peeling off the skin) for about 4 minutes each side, then took them off the fire.

    Crushed 4 cloves of garlic and chopped 4-5 slices of jalapeño and mashed it all together...it's REALLY good!

            Sorry ohliz, I was not clear, I've done just plantains with the garlic. Also, you can deep fry the egg plant and have it with mango chucky.

                  It is nice and slimy almost like okra but more refined.

                    Ever make homemade pizza? eggplant is perfect for that. Or saute it with a little olive oil and garlic. It gets soft like squash.

                        The key is to cook it right. for example I can hardly eat it if I just steam it alone. But if you bake it on pizza with olive oil and the pizza sauce it's very good.

                          When I was little I hated it. Around my teens I started to like it.

                          I made the other one tonight, it was really good, again [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

                              Dont always listen to me donni, I was only eggzagerating the slimy part.
                              Eggplant is good in the many ways that it can be prepared.
                              Years ago, I was privy to it being served with mincemeat.
                              The eggplant contents were gutted from its purple pod and mixed with mince and spices/ seasoning and returned to its pod, where then it was put in the oven to bake for a while.
                              Yummmm It was good.
                              Let freedom and peace abide, the sun shine, and your love beside me with you everytime.
