Eggplant Surprise

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

When I stopped at the produce stand between my house and my daughter's they had a special on eggplant, just 50 cents each instead of $1.29. So I got one.

Usually, I spray a non-stick pan with olive oil Pam cook the eggplant until soft and brown. Sometimes I add tomatoes. I really like it either of those ways. But I couldn't find a good pan or spray at my daughter's house, and I knew she would not have any tomatoes in her house -- she doesn't eat them. I hadn't brought any other veggies to eat, so I was perplexed. Hmm.

I microwaved a whole eggplant, stabbed with a fork a couple times. Then I cut it in half, tasted, and it wasn't bad. But then I added an ounce of low fat mozzarella cheese and microwaved 30 seconds more. Then added a tablespoon of sunflower seeds. I was surprised at how good it was. The other half was just as good later!

    Sounds interesting! I like eggplant occasionally but can't eat it fried. Your way sounds like a good alternative!

    I love eggplant. Like the suggestion for using spaghetti sauce over it. I use spaghetti sauce over french cut green beans. emoticon

    That sounds really good: how inventive of you!

I enjoyed your comments on my fat kids blog . . . like you I'm a "fueller" when it comes to eating, looking for the best possible nutrition "buy" for the calorie "cost". And: gotta weigh/measure/track, probably for the rest of my days. Still, it beats gaining weight!

    My oldest son would peel the eggplant, then cjunk
it up and pour hommade spaghetti sauce over it.
Between him and his friend, they could each eat
a large eggplant for an afternoon snack. Just
another option! HUGS!
