I’m not complaining but . . we’re having to eat eggplant every day. I don’t know of a good way to preserve it so . . we eat it. Vince loves it! I like it but I don’t think there’s any way I could cook it that he wouldn’t think it was delicious.
Last night I googled “eggplant recipes” and came up with lots of ideas so now I’m back to hoping we get enough eggplant to try all the recipes.
Tonight I fixed Eggplant Towers. They weren’t hard to make at all but I fixed kale/Italian sausage soup to go with it and I had the soup already made before I started the eggplant. I get frustrated when I’m frying something and have to mess with other stuff too – especially with the electric stove where I don’t have instant control over the heat. I will make these again and I’ll be sure to have something like roasted chicken with them so I’m not dealing with several pots at once.
It’s Trisha Yearwood’s recipe and she has a simple marina recipe included. I made it and it is simple and probably some of the best marinara I’ve had (I’m not a fan). Even Vince said it was good. it called for Italian seasoning, which I don’t have. That sounds criminal with Vince being Italian, right? I just added extra basil from the garden, oregano, fennel seeds, a bit of rosemary and thyme and it turned out great.
When we were done eating, I asked Vince if he liked it and he said “YES! I’d eat this every day!” We probably won’t have it every day but we will have it again before the eggplant runs out.
