Eggplant Abundance

eggplant bowlThis versatile fruit, is a wonderful vegetable (yes it is a fruit technically and a vegetable in the culinary sense) coming in all different shapes and sizes, appropriate for different creations. As they grow all year, I have come to know and love them and cook them a thousand different ways. Even at Alawa Primary School we popped them in everything and the kids loved them- grilled eggplant and mozzarella pizza, baba ganoush, curried eggplant, baked eggplant and home made pasta… ahhh the list goes on. The dish below is one of my favourites, go to Recipes tab for the secret behind this great dish, first made by Karen Cieri for Taste of The Top End Platters at last year’s Sustainability festival..javanese2
