Fire up the grill and get ready to enjoy one of the great, underappreciated vegetables.
For whatever reasons, eggplant brings out passionate emotions on every side of the dinner table. This bold, meaty vegetable can be enjoyed any number of ways, and can be the basis of a fantastic vegetarian meal. Two of our favorite ways to enjoy eggplant are as Eggplant Parmesans: one with Feta, the other without. This baked-to-perfection dish layers eggplant with the rich flavors of a delicious onion, garlic, and tomato sauce mixture. How bad could that be?

Fried Eggplant is simply scrumptious. Soaked in buttermilk, then dredged in a flour-and-cornmeal mixture, this crispy vegetable sensation will show you how tasty eggplant actually is. Whether you want your eggplant to be the base for layers of creamy sauce and cheese, or would prefer it coated in a delicious batter and fried to perfection, eggplant is a vegetable rich with potential—and flavor.
