Don't Sleep on Eggplant


Too many of y'all be sleeping on eggplant!
.
I did for too long. It was too bitter for me. Convinced it was a disgusting veg. But about a year ago, I watched a YouTube video of @countrylifevlogs68 and learned to slice it up and soak in salt water for at least an hour first.
.
Game changer!
.
That removes all the nastiness. (Your water will be a 1902 Wild West tub water brown.)
.
Yum! 😂🤪
.
But after your pieces have soaked and are dried with a towel, you can begin your meal prep.
.
Eggplant parmigiana has become a fave in the Benfield house. Definitely a healthy, delicious staple in our menu.

What are your favorite eggplant (aka aubergine) meals? I'd love to try out some new ones!
