Cheesy Eggplant Casserole
This cheesy eggplant casserole has a light custard with deliciously tender and flavorful summer vegetables and fresh herbs. The cheese makes this easy dish creamy and decadent. Enjoy it for brunch or dinner with a green salad on the side………….

Eggplant Lasagna Rolls
Vegetarians and meat-eaters alike will devour these comforting lasagna rolls. We use thinly sliced eggplant in place of pasta to cut the carbs. Preroasting the eggplant helps develop the flavor and softens the slices for easy rolling………..

Easy Eggplant Stir-Fry
This eggplant stir-fry is easy to make. We call for long and tender Japanese eggplant, but regular eggplant will work well too, cut into 1-inch pieces. Jalapeño peppers can vary from mild to very spicy. If you need to cut the heat, opt for small sweet peppers in their place…………

Love that Eggplant…………

Eggplant should be slightly firm but not hard. In other words, if you push on it with your finger and the veggie feels very soft, or you’re able to puncture the skin, it’s too far gone. A perfectly ripe eggplant will not have as much give when touched as a ripe tomato or peach.

To store your Eggplant, place uncut and unwashed eggplant in a plastic bag and store in the refrigerator crisper where it will keep for a few days. If it is too large for the crisper, do not try to force it in; this will damage the skin and cause the eggplant to spoil and decay. Instead, place it on a shelf within the refrigerator.

Lamb with mint jelly is a tried-and-true combination and this recipe takes the idea to new heights. The sweet, shocking green jelly is transformed into a richly flavored and pleasingly dark sauce. Make It a Meal: Serve with whole-wheat couscous and peas………..

Braised Lamb Shanks and Eggplant
This slow-cooked lamb and eggplant stew melts in your mouth. Sumac, a lemony-flavored spice, gives the dish a fruity, tangy aroma. Look for it in Mediterranean markets or spice shops. Serve the stew over mashed root vegetables, bulgur or brown rice…………

Lamb and Rice
The sauce in this recipe is a heavenly mixture of tomatoes, spices, herbs and mustard. It provides amazing flavor to the lamb as they spend up to 12 hours together in the slow cooker…………

Baba Ghannouj (Eggplant Dip)
Low-carb and requiring just seven simple ingredients, this traditional Middle Eastern dip is perfect for combining with pita bread, crackers or crudités for a flavor combination that can’t be beat.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 13 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes

3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions
Yield: 2 1/3 cups
Serving size: 1/3 cup

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise. Place it on a baking sheet with cut sides down. Bake in hot oven for approximately 20 minutes, until skin is dark and eggplant is soft and cooked through when pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, place garlic in a small mixing bowl; add tahini and lemon juice. When eggplant is done, remove from oven and run cold water over eggplant halves for one minute. Drain water and cool slightly. Remove skin (it will peel back easily). Dice the eggplant and place it in bowl with tahini mixture. Mash the eggplant with the other ingredients to make a lumpy dip.
