Eggplant Filled with Herbs, Onion and Cheese Recipe

egg plant rolls

While checking out my Facebook Home feed the other day I notices someone I was following liked a recipe using what appeared to be eggplant.  It took me a while to figure out what the heck the recipe ingredients were because it was written in French.  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?  I hope you will give this recipe a try.  I’m going to be demonstrating it during the live stream on Wednesday during Spade to Spoon so I hope you click over and check that out.

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 in the live-stream 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.   The animated gif image if funny below because it looks like the eggplant is getting away from me! LOL   You can purchase the Copper Chef pan on Amazon and have it at your door with tons of recipes to use in a day!
