What Is Your Favorite Way To Cook Eggplant?

Yesterday I showed you these cream and violet eggplants, which, believe me, I cannot wait to eat. But we are all curious: what is your favorite way to cook an eggplant? Do you have a favorite recipe for it?

One of my favorite ways to cook these rather unusual vegetables is to roast them then whiz them into silky, tangy baba ghanoush. Another way is to bake them with a flurry of Parmesan, breadcrumbs, and fresh chopped tomatoes and herbs for a fresher version of eggplant Parmesan. And I also love eggplant slices all smoky and tender from the grill.

Here are a few recipes and recipe reviews involving eggplant. And tell us: what's your favorite way to cook this veggie?
