Even though its mid-October, we found pictures from one of favorite summer dishes and we decided to post it before it was WAY too late. We were still able to find fresh tomatoes and eggplants at a local farmer’s market last weekend, so hopefully you can get this fresh produce and make this recipe before its too late…
Eggplants are one of our favorite vegetables, but it’s hard to find a good variety of delicious preparations. We like baba ghanoush (roasted eggplant dip), and we like to put eggplants on pizzas, and we especially like fried eggplant pieces with marinara sauce. These options, along with a classic eggplant parmigiana, are all of our go-to recipes, and so we’re always happy to get new ideas for eggplants.
Well, ok- the above paragraph is a little bit of an exaggeration. If you type ‘eggplant’ in the search box on 2frugalfoodies, you not only get links to eggplant parm and fried eggplant, but we also have recipes for:
So- there are more options than we thought we had for eggplants. Still! It’s always fun to find something new.
So, tonight for dinner- get an eggplant, onion, and tomatoes and make this salad to go along side whatever your main course is going to be.
Then, tomorrow when you have leftovers, just combine the leftover salad with some pasta shells and some olive oil, and you’ve got a delicious and nutritious lunch!
