Eggplant with Mint

November 2009

These grilled eggplant slices drizzled with yoghurt mint sauce are fantastic with Persian rice or falafel. (Our Persian Rice recipe is now available in the BloggerAid cookbook *)

The mint sauce contrasts very well with goat's cheese sauce, harissa and/or tahini sauce.

Grilled eggplant is wonderful. Coins of larger eggplants work well, but my personal favourite is Asian eggplants sliced lengthwise, lightly oiled and dusted with a hint of turmeric then grilled on the barbecue. Here it is served with mjdarrah.

Thinly sliced eggplants are ideal for dipping into batter made from chickpea flour and deep-fried to make pakoras.

Eggplant pakoras are fantastic.

Sludge (well, it tastes good...)

Don't let the fact that this eggplant and basil looks like dog's breakfast fool you. It was delicious! We served it with ricotta leek pie

eggplant - July 2013

We usually get regular western-style or Asian eggplants (so often that we don't have any photos of them) but these little fist-sized eggplants looked so beautiful that we had to try them!
