Yes, Eggplant Again! It’s Still Summer! #Vegetarian Could Be #Vegan

I’ll be honest: Even I, the Eggplant Queen, am getting a little tired of eggplant. So I’m trying new things with it.

I think I saw roasted eggplant on The Woks Of Life blog. If not, I know they have a lot of wonderful recipes, like this one, which I haven’t tried but will.

ANYWAY, I cubed an eggplant and sliced a green pepper that was about to go to Jesus. Because I’m a mushroom junkie, I threw in some sliced mushrooms. I coated all that with a little olive oil and some Mrs. Dash, just because I thought that would be good. At the last minute — and here’s where it goes from vegan to vegetarian, although you could use vegan Parmesan-ish cheese substitute or leave the cheese off — I sprinkled on some Parmesan cheese.

Baked it at 435F (about 224C) for about twenty minutes.

Served it over pisketti. Sorry: spaghetti. I have four children, four grandchildren, and three-and-a-half great-grandchildren.

I had some of the roasted stuff left over, so I heated it up the next morning and put a sunnyside-up egg over it.


A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Someone tires of their favorite food.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    We get eggplant fries every now and then. Long skinny square strips, breaded and deep fried.

    One of my cats likes “paskeddy-oos.” I have to share, or he’s not my friend for a half hour or so.

      Oh, that’s funny! I had a cat who liked popcorn, and one who liked peas, but none who liked “paskeddy-oos”.

    I would also like mushrooms and parm, thanks! Puh-sketti is always a hit here, too! I like those eggplant boats, have you had those? Carve out the center and put all kinds of noms in them. Everyone can ‘make their own boat’ like a pizza. Mmm. Want. Don’t think I’ve had eggplant all summer!

      I’ve never had an eggplant boat! Maybe I’ll try that before they’re all gone. Don’t want to … wait for it … miss the boat. A-HAAA-haa-haa-haa-HAAAAA! <–(Phyllis Diller laugh)
