Certain vegetables have a majestic quality to them that requires you to address them with a level of respect. We feel that way about eggplant, and we're fascinated with the many dishes you can prepare from the eggplant. With so many fresh varieties from the farm, eggplant has many delicious and versatile preparations. The eggplant has such a rich texture, it can be used as a great meat/poultry alternative for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Dive in with Chef Cara Chicazola-Tobin, as she prepares some Imam Bayildi (whole braised Turkish Eggplant), Zaalouk (Moroccan Eggplant Salad), and Eggplant Fatteh (Casserole) with Yogurt Sauce. Silky, sweet and creamy Eggplant is a staple in Mediterranean cooking.
