A Roundup Of Eggplant
Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables. Well, it’s actually a fruit — did you know that? It’s cooked as a vegetable, like tomatoes. Another thing tomatoes and eggplant have in common: they are members of the nightshade family. They are so versatile; they can be pickled, fried, stewed, stir-fried, braised, baked, stuffed, roasted, and pureed. And they aren’t all purple, either. There are lavender-colored, green, splotchy, and orange eggplants!
