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.

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!!"

The is delicious, but I reduced the oil by about half : http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/eggplant--and-saffron-rice-bake
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 love eggplant in stews and curries -- and also just plain roasted! Here's my favorite eggplant curry recipe: http://food52.com/recipes/455-purnima-garg-s-eggplant-and-tomato-curry
