Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup fresh or dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 head frisee, washed and dried
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut eggplant in half; place on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place in oven; cook until tender, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven; when cool enough to handle, scoop flesh into a strainer to drain. Transfer drained eggplant to a bowl; add garlic, parsley, bread crumbs, Parmesan, egg, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Form mixture into 2-inch patties.

  2. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add patties, and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Place frisee on serving platter; drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Top with fritters.

    I make eggplant fritters by peeling and dicing eggplant and boiling until soft, drain and use accordingly.
