Our week 17 share features our bounty of eggplants. We included a baba ganoush recipe in the share, but we have 2 other classic eggplant dishes that we wanted to share. The first is Yu Xiang Qie Zi - a Chinese dish that roughly translates to 'Garlic Fragrance Eggplant'. It is one of our favorites to make, and it is not difficult to make at home. It traditionally uses the long Asian-style eggplants, but eny eggplant will do if you chop it into batons. Check out the recipe here.
The second recipe is the classic Italian eggplant recipe - caponata. This dish of eggplant and tomato, seasoned with vinegar is amazing as a side dish, spread over crusty bread, or even as a main meal. Check out two variations here and here.
