Eggplant is such a flexible vegetable you can take in so many different directions. Today I’ve given you 3 completely different types of eggplant recipes with completely different flavor profiles. They take you from lunch to dinner.
This week’s organic vegetable delivery box had eggplant, tomatoes, corn, green onions, broccoli, shishito peppers, cherry tomatoes, flat leaf parsley, carrots.
The corn went immediately to my Instant Pot for the best corn on the cob ever and in 4 minutes!
The broccoli wasn’t even enough for one vegetable serving so it went raw into a salad along with carrots and cherry tomatoes.
I gave the peppers away.
So here we are with eggplant again.
I know I’ve already done at least 10 eggplant recipes this season already, so I dug deep for something interesting.
I think you’ll enjoy this for several reasons.
It’s different, has some great flavors in it, it’s hearty, and it’s simple and easy to make.
I didn’t know there was such a thing as Lebanese Moussaka until I found this recipe.
It is nothing like a greek moussaka except for the eggplant.
If you want to use fresh garbanzo beans or tomatoes, a 15-ounce can is 1 1/2 cups.
My favorite eggplant recipe is one I found last year and still make on a regular basis. It also has one of the best recipes for tomato sauce. And this is one of the easiest tomato sauce recipes I’ve found.
A couple weeks ago I took half of the recipe for eggplant meatballs to make the meatballs and then I needed to find soemthing else to do with the rest.
I added 2 medium baked sweet potatoes, mashed them and added it into the meatball misture.
I made veggie burgers by scooping 1/3 cup of the mixture onto a hot flat grill that was litghtly oiled. I cooked them on medium about 5 minutes on each side.
I freeze them and pop one out for lunch when I want it.
Health and nutrition are a big passion of mine because, without your health, all the success you can achieve is meaningless. In 1981 I started seriously studying health, nutrition, and the mind/body connection. I stopped eating meat in 1990 for health reasons and compassion for animals. In 1999 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2005, the day after Christmas, I lost my mother at the age of 69 to lung cancer. Since then, helping others to regain their health by making simple changes has become a driving force in my life.
Until next time, I’d love to hear your thoughts. Just comment on this post here or on Facebook.
