Ah, this poor little vegetable (technically a berry). So often it finds itself misunderstood and on peoples’ list of least desirable edibles. Maybe it’s a general lack of knowledge, bad past experiences, or simply its shape that frightens people away.
However, with rising food costs, it’s nice to have alternatives. I often consider eggplant as a great meat substitute taste wise, along with mushrooms. I’m not a vegetarian, I simply eat what tastes great. And I can say without a doubt this dish will leave meat-lovers satisfied.
