Choose firm, smooth eggplants. We bake rather than fry ours for less mess and less fat.

Eggplant Involtini with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Grilling eggplant is a lighter alternative to frying, and when you pile up cooked slices as they come off the fire, they continue to soften from the steam. Afterwards, the tender slices are stuffed and rolled with a mixture of three different cheeses, currants, pine nuts, and breadcrumbs, and baked in a fresh tomato sauce. The result is a vegetarian one-pan dinner and a culinary melting pot, reflecting influences from numerous invasions of Sicily over the centuries.

Roasted Ratatouille and Eggs

Need a meatless one-pot dinner? Try this tasty cross between ratatouille and shakshuka. Japanese eggplants, red peppers, and cherry tomatoes are roasted with garlic, then eggs are added and baked in the delicious mix of vegetables.

Eggplant Meatball Casserole

These delicate vegetarian meatballs are lighter in texture than standard meatballs, but full of flavor. For best results, form the meatballs and let them sit in the refrigerator overnight -- this helps them firm up and makes them much easier to sear.

Roasted Eggplant

Eggplant can be roasted whole or in slices, like zucchini; toss slices on a baking sheet with olive oil, salt, and pepper before roasting. The flesh can be used in recipes such as baba ghanoush and eggplant caviar.
