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.

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

Mmm, that sounds DELICIOUS!

I meant to add that yours looked pretty good. I’m not a big eggplant fan, but a little on pasta is usually good.

Now I’m jonesing for some eggplant fries. You got a recipoo for that?
Dan AntionAugust 31, 2021 at 2:23pm
I do not. I get it from the bar.

Breaded with normal stuff and a bunch of Parmesan

Aha- so your children were pisgetti-speakers, too! That was my brother.
Marian AllenAugust 31, 2021 at 1:57pm
Yep. Pisgetti all the way!

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!
Marian AllenSeptember 8, 2021 at 8:48am
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)
