.While checking out my Facebook Home feed the other day I notice someone I was following like a recipe using what appeared to be an eggplant. It took me a while to figure out what the heck the recipe ingredients were because it was written in French. This was obviously before ‘translation’ was an option on Facebook. As the video played I jotted down a few notes as I identified many of the ingredients in the dish. Isn’t it wonderful how food is an international language? In this post, I share a delicious homegrown eggplantt and herb rolled recipe.
Eggplant Recipe That Will Rock Your World
This is a fun recipe I actually changed a little because I wasn’t sure what ‘french cheese or cream’ was. I used ricotta the first time I made this and added a few extra herbs. You’ll want to start out the recipe by sauteing the eggplant in olive oil. I did this in my Copper Chef pan because it was much cooler than standing out at the grill on this 90*f day in July. You can purchase the Copper Chef pan on Amazon and have it at your door with tons of recipes to use in a day! It is a nice lightweight pan so I can see myself taking it on road trips in the RV.
For this recipe you will need to following ingredients:
- 2 eggplants cut into thin-slice
- 1/2 cup mozzarella
- 1 cup ricotta cheese
- 3 chopped garlic cloves
- 2 shallots chopped
- chopped parsley
- 6 pinches of salt
- 6 pinches of black pepper
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- cherry tomatoes
The rolled eggplant recipe is super easy to make but be sure to use the freshest veggies and herbs you can only find in your home garden. I carefully picked this recipe because you can easily grow all of these ingredients in today’s post. I highlight recommend the Long Purple Eggplant. This is an heirloom and looks stunning in the garden and on the dinner table.
The one in this photo was grown in my dome. What a beautiful purple that vegetable harvest was before picking.
