Lorijean44 has chosen Eggplant for this Cookalong.

Guess we are on a real veggie kick!

I don't do eggplant, so maybe there will be a recipe that will tempt me to try it.

Please check this thread after March 6th if you have posted....you maybe the one to pick the next subject.

Now, let's dig out those wonderful eggplant recipes!

Oh yeah, I love eggplant. This is one of my favorite snacks, from Eating Well, and it's low enough in fat and calories to go on the Slimmer Dinners thread. Elery will grill the eggplant if he's here, otherwise I just slice it and roast it and the garlic in the oven on baking sheets.

2 medium eggplants, (about 1 pound each) 4 cloves garlic, unpeeled 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 tablespoons tahini, (see Note) 1 1/4 teaspoons salt Extra-virgin olive oil, for garnish Ground sumac, for garnish (see Note)

Preheat grill to high.

Prick eggplants all over with a fork. Thread garlic cloves onto a skewer. Grill the eggplants, turning occasionally, until charred and tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Grill the garlic, turning once, until charred and tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

Transfer the eggplants and garlic to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, peel both. Transfer to a food processor. Add lemon juice, tahini and salt; process until almost smooth. Drizzle...
