Eggplant Un-Parmesan

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

Here’s a recipe that I found on Mark Bittman’s website. I’m always looking for good vegetarian/vegan recipes because we’re trying to eat less meat and because of our friends’ dietary preferences/restrictions. When I looked at this recipe, I thought it might be a bland vegetarian side dish, but I was willing to give it a [...]

Grilled Eggplant with Tomatoes, Basil and Feta

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

You know I like a recipe if I make it twice within a week. I found this recipe in the September issue of Martha Stewart
and made it while I had access to a grill. In the Northeast, this is a great late-August, early-September recipe when eggplant and delicious tomatoes are in season.

I love to [...]

Don’t let the name turn you off and don’t let the photo fool you. This is one of the best baked pasta dishes I have ever made, or eaten for that matter. It’s comfort food at its best and it has an incredible taste, like nothing I’ve had before. I’ve made this once a week [...]

Mediterranean Eggplant and Barley Salad

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

This salad is delicious, but I won’t lie, it’s fairly time-consuming to make.  There are lots of steps, lots of chopping and quite a bit of time needed. This is not something you’re going to throw together on a weekday night after work, unless you’re planning to eat it the next day.

I found this recipe [...]

Italian-Style Eggplant

I received a single eggplant from my CSA last Saturday. My sister Gail was visiting and she told me that she had recently made eggplant stacks, so I decided to give them a try. I also remembered seeing an article earlier this summer in the NY Times about different ways to grill eggplant. You can [...]

Carole's Eggplant Parmigiana

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

Growing up, we always got to choose our birthday dinner and dessert. When I was younger, I would always choose Chicken Divan. To this day I still love it, although I don’t make it much. The recipe my mom followed called for sauteed chicken breasts served over a bed [...]

Grilled Eggplant Salad

I made this salad with some fresh eggplant from the CSA. It isn’t the prettiest salad to look at, but boy is it delicious. I love the combination of flavors. It’s a perfect summertime salad because it’s delicious, fresh and very easy to make.

Instead of brushing the vegetables with [...]

Roasted Eggplant Spread

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

I had an eggplant from the CSA that needed to be used.   I didn’t get enough eggplant to make an eggplant parmagiana, so this recipe was perfect.    We had some friends visiting us from Atlanta this past week and I served this as an hors d’oeuvre before dinner the other night.    We gobbled it [...]

Vegetable Parmigiana

DiggStumbleUponEmailPinterestShare

I love finding delicious vegetarian meals. The more I read, the more that I think my sons’ diets of fruit and nuts aren’t so bad after all. I’m always trying to get them to take a bite of chicken or beef, but two of the four patently refuse. If I [...]
