Eggplant is a common vegetable throughout the Southern Mediterranean, where it is often fried. Roasting is a simpler, healthier method of preparing the nightshade veggie and removing any bitter edge. And it is even more delicious when made into an eggplant dip!
Say good-bye to dry turkey burgers! Mixing in eggplant makes for moist, tender burgers and brings a touch of smoky flavor. These have a bit of a kick from the curry powder and cayenne, so feel free to cut back if you're sensitive to spice.
