Top Rated Eggplant Recipes

The eggplant in this recipe gets its raciness from a spicy red chile salsa and some chipotle chiles en adobo — think of it as a Mexican-inspired ratatouille. It gives a boost of flavor to an omelette so you won't be missing the lack of cheese, making it an exciting yet healthy breakfast dish.

I'm normally not a fan of eggplant, but when paired with thick green tomatoes, some creamy feta, and plenty of basil, even I admit it's delicious. The flavors all mellow out and blend in the oven, making this dish a perfect appetizer (bonus points for grilled toasties on the side). Click here to see Green Tomatoes for Everyone.

Eggplant pasta
I have to admit that I was lucky the first few times that I cooked eggplant; I never ended up with that mushy, chewy texture that most people dislike — until recently. I got lazy/overconfident and thought it would be OK if I used a somewhat soft eggplant without trying to take some of the moisture out of it — big mistake. So I learned the hard way that whenever you have an eggplant that has a soft, spongy center (and you don't feel like salting, draining and rinsing it), then simply lop off the seedy area. There's usually enough meat to go around and you'll end up with a silky, creamy and flavorful vegetable.  This pasta dish is quick, easy and becomes even more delicious as the mozzarella melts into the hot pasta, adding a thick creaminess to the dish.  Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Easy Eggplant Recipes.

Meatballs
Seasoned with traditional Moroccan spices like cumin and cinnamon, the meatballs soak up the gingery, smoky sauce. It’s a luscious combination for a weeknight dinner or an easy meal on the weekend. If you like, you can even make the meatballs a day or two in advance. The sauce is delicious by itself served with couscous or orzo, or tucked into pita bread.
