How to broil eggplant
Eggplant Simpler than you think.
Cooking eggplant may sound more difficult that it actually is; in facteggplant is a fairly versatile vegetable that many people may ignore. The unassuming flavour of the plain eggplant invites a variety of spices and you can have some fun with this mildly exotic food.
A common question that people ask is: To peel or not to peel.. While peeling will depend on how the eggplant is used in the recipe, if you do not peel then it is important to buy or use young tender eggplant because older tough skin will take longer to cook and this longer cooking time will overcook the flesh.
Eggplant can be baked, broiled grilled, steamed, or sautéed. It is versatile and works well with tomatoes, onions, garlic and cheese. The only way eggplant is unacceptable is raw.
