Eggplant is one of those vegetables that you either love it or hate it. For people who love eggplant, they may be at a loss for how to cook it. Amazingly there are at least two cookbooks dedicated to cooking this unusual vegetable.
“Eggplant: More than 75 Delicious Recipes” was written by Ofir Jovani with photographs by Danya Weiner. It sells for $14.95 at Amazon.com and contains 128 pages. I can almost guarantee this isn’t a cookbook you will find on most cook’s shelves.
The cookbook explains how this exotic vegetable can be used in almost any dish. It can be easily incorporated in salads or served as a soup. Consider making Eggplant with Silan Sauce or Eggplant Gazpacho. You can find many recipes for main courses that use this succulent vegetable. Stuffed Eggplant, Greek Moussaka and Eggplant Bolognaise Lasagna are only a few of the recipes you’ll find. For an added twist, make the Balsamic and Ginger Eggplant Jam. It is sure to surprise anyone who eats it!
Along with the recipes, the book has a guide on how to choose the eggplants from the store if you do not grow them yourself. The eggplant is not a commonly used food, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. If you love eggplant, this cookbook is the perfect addition to your collection. If you’ve never eaten eggplant and would like to give it a try, this cookbook is great for finding a recipe to use.
