Eggplant and other ingredients.
In 1985, I moved with my family to Hong Kong because of my father's job. It was a life-changing five-year experience that I will be grateful for forever - one that would irreversibly change my outook on the world, and food. The person who perhaps most impacted my view of food on a daily basis, was Ah-Hing, the Chinese woman who lived with us.Ah-Hing became family, and the kitchen was her domain. Among many things I watched her make during the years, this quick, easy eggplant dish is one of the most familiar. She served it with a variety of other Chinese dishes, most often bok choy with freshly grated ginger, and tofu and scallions.Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Easy Eggplant Recipes.

Making this recipe will remind you of cooking with grandma. It may be time consuming to bread and fry the eggplant but the crispy exterior that forms is well worth it. Top the eggplant with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.  Courtesy of Nitra Ladies Auxiliary, provided by Kosher.com

Eggplant Bolognese with Wine
The secret to the rich flavor and beautiful, deep-red color of this sauce is lots of red wine. This sauce uses almost an entire bottle of wine and a long cooking time to meld the flavors together. Serve tossed with al dente spaghetti or pappardelle and fresh grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Roasted Eggplant & Spinach Quesadilla
I had this really brilliant eggplant quesadilla while visiting friends in Syracuse. I don't remember what else was in it, but it was definitely the best cheeseless quesadilla I've ever tasted. That experience inspired me to come up with my own version (since I couldn't remember theirs), so here it is. And, you know, actually I think mine might be better. Just sayin'...

Eggplant Parmesan
Eggplant parmesan was a staple in my house growing up. I've always known I could never make it as good as my mother because, well, can anyone ever make anything as good as their own mother?  Nevertheless, I make eggplant parmesan because I love it. Even if it didn't come from the kitchen of my childhood, it's delicious. Click here to see Cozy Comfort Food Recipes.
