My first eggplant is now growing strong, with many more blooms on the plants.
The rain we have had lately seems to have sent the plants into overdrive. What is in store for these beautiful purple vegetables? Well first is going to have to a the freshest eggplant Parmesan one has ever dreamed of. Second will be the brilliant vegetable tort that Kelly does so well. And finally, the rest will be roasted and canned in preparation for baba ganoush, the ever so delightful Middle Eastern dish that calls for roasted peppers (also from the garden) and great olive oil.
