Expert Tips

This recipe resembles baba ghanoush, a Middle Eastern eggplant spread. Our recipe features the non-traditional addition of tomatoes and onions.

Like tomatoes and potatoes, eggplant, is a member of the night-shade family. Eggplant grows in a variety of shapes and sizes, from large pear-shapes to slender zucchini-shapes. Its color ranges from white to purple to striped. Purchase firm, unblemished eggplant without any soft areas.
