How to broil eggplant

Updated on October 31, 2008

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.

    You can score them before you add the butter and stuff some herbs in the knife marks. Gets the flavor a little more up there.

    Yum! You're right exept for raw it's great. I like the small once stuffed with spiced hamburger meat. If you stuff them really solid, after broiling they look really pretty sliced...

    Thanks

    regards Zsuzsy
