The is delicious, but I reduced the oil by about half : http://www.bonappetit.com... Saffron rice and roasted eggplant with mozzarella and tomato sauce. Unexpectedly delicious. It really does work. Sort of like a risotto bake. Now I want to make this for dinner!
I just recently posted a question about eggplant ideas, and the answers included links to some lovely recipes. Just search the hotline for "more eggplant!!"
Music to cook eggplant by:
I'll prepare eggplant in differently, depending on the kind of eggplant it is. For big Italian eggplant, I usually make moussaka or turn it into an eggplant dip. For Chinese eggplant, I steam it with Chinese shrimp paste and oyster sauce. Or I'll cook it with a spicy sauce, not unlike a mapo tofu.
