I got a couple of organic eggplants this morning at farmer's market. Anyone have a great recipe? I have never cooked fresh eggplent. I generally buy it grilled & frozen & take it from there.

Eggplant is excellent in Lentil soup.

I make Beef barley,lentil soup add all kinds of veggies to it and simmer it all day.The only beef in it is the broth,just for added flavor.It's more of a vegetable soup.Everything goes in it :)

When it's done I add just a touch of parmesion,or cheddar cheese on top. slice up a loaf of sourdough bread, Gotta have some dippin stuff.. and serve it.

Tomato broth is a great alternative as well.

My FAVE thing to do it to cut them across (so they are circles) and add a slice of mozzarella, a couple of basil leaves and a slice of tomato. Put into the oven for about 20-30 min at ~350 degrees. YUM!!

ME TOO! I add a stale loaf of french bread, toss it in Italian dressing and let it get 'soggy' and add baked (I prefer cubed) eggplant and make it all like a salad. It's super yummy!

And.. I like to take portabello mushrooms and eggplant and marinate the slices like they are steaks, flash grill them, and it's a great veggie alternative for a main course.
