Or just roast it in the oven in a lasagna pan with sweet potatoes, onions, peppers, squash, mushrooms, red potatoes. Toss in olive oil, salt pepper and a little paprika for color.August 27, 2009 2:55 am at 2:55 am #293708
Hey – this sounds good. So I guess you just slice them in long sheets on a mandolin slicer? How long does it go into the oven to bake?August 27, 2009 3:16 am at 3:16 am #293709

Another good one is eggplant manicotti. Pan saute thin slices until soft. Fill with a little ricotta with garlic and herbs and what not. Roll them up with a toothpick and bake lightly with a tomato sauce, some fresh grated parm or romano and some parsley or chives.
yummy!! I’ve had something similar for lunch at basi – thinly sliced lengthwise and filled with mozzarella and basil leaves, then rolled up and baked with tomato sauce.August 28, 2009 12:34 pm at 12:34 pm #293710

Mandolins work great. Cooking wise, Not very long unless you mix some egg in with your ricotta filling then you have to make sure it is cooked. If you do a simple filling of ricotta, basil, garlic, and parmesan inside cooked eggplant(cooked until soft enough to roll), At that point it is just heating all the flavors together. I sometimes add egg to make the filling stay inside the roll better and ooze out less, but both ways are good.November 9, 2009 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #293711

Best thing I’ve had with Eggplant: Grilled Eggplant BLTS
Grill Eggplant slices
Grill Bacon (If you’ve never done this it is truly amazing)

Someone I know has an amazing recipe blog with an eggplant-pumpkin spread: http://vegan-monster.blogspot.com/2009_01_01_archive.html. I’ve also had fabulous luck with pre-jarred Indian sauces from the grocery store. The spices lend themselves to preservation nicely :) Add diced eggplant & rice = MMM :)
