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!
