Today I opened the paper to find an extensive article about Eggplant, written by food writer and cookbook author Ellise Pierce ( Cowgirl Chef, Texas Cooking with a French Accent).
Ellise included my recipe for Tex-Mex Eggplant.
The basis of the article and the inclusion of my recipe is that there are options when choosing Eggplant as a main dish. It doesn't have to be slathered in grease or Marinara Sauce. The options that Ellise included are:
Roasted Eggplant with Saffron Yogurt / "This dish comes from Ottolenghi, The Cookbook, it typifies the vibrant cooking of London chef Yotam Ottolenghi".
Tex-Mex Eggplant from Grapevine food blogger Terry Mosher hippyinthekitchen.blogspot.com
Roasted Eggplant Salad with Tomatoes and Capers from cookbook author Deborah Madison.
Quinoa and Roasted Tomato Eggplant Stacks with Basil Pesto from Stephane Beauchamp, executive chef at Lake Austin Spa Resort.
The article will hopefully convince the non Eggplant lovers that we who love Eggplant can offer you many choices from which you can change your mind about the mysterious vegetable!
Thanks you Ellise for the story and for including me in the article!
The full recipe can be found on my blog under November 2013.
Peace in the Kitchen!
