We’re in prime summer garden season in Utah, and zucchini recipes have been getting the spotlight. But another veggie that’s abundant during summer garden season is eggplant, and I’ve been a huge eggplant fan ever since I started growing it in my garden.

  1. Great post!! Want to see more in future. Keep sharing with us,
    Thanks!!

  2. These recipes look so good! I can’t wait to try these someday. Thanks a lot for posting!

  3. It’s actually very good with lots of raw veggies: carrots, celery, cauliflower, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, etc. And while baba ghanouj is very similar to hummus, the chickpeas that make up the body of hummus are higher in carbs than the eggplant used for baba ghanouj. So a platter of veggies with a bowl of baba ghanouj makes a pretty good low-carb appetizer, I think.

  4. What about Baba Ghanouj? That’s the eggplant recipe that won over my family.

    • Yes, that’s a popular recipe using eggplant for sure. This is focused on low-carb recipes and that’s usually eaten with Pita Bread, so that’s probably why I didn’t come across a low-carb version of it. But I bet it would be good dipped with cauliflower!

  5. Welllll, I am guilty of not really "trying" eggplant. In the last year and 1/2 I have had to drastically change my (and my families) diet. I am gluten and dairy free, plus I have to avoid acidic foods. I tell people, be careful of what you pray for. 🙂 I think I may have to try a couple of these recipes as a co-worker brought me in some beautiful eggplants from her garden. I will let you know how it goes Kalyn! Thanks for sharing!

  6. So many ideas of delicious eggplant recipes. Thank you for sharing, Kalyn!

  7. How did you know I got an eggplant in my CSA this week?! Thanks for the great ideas. 🙂

  8. wow, its very yummy and delicious. so i like to make it today and eat eggplant rollup. thanks for sharing…

  9. Hello, hope my question gets to you. I made eggplant w/a tomato sauce,I salted the sliced pieces of ep before,and let sit for awhile,b4 frying in a skillet. The problem was the skin on the edges was so tough,that it became uneatable,although the whole dish was great. Q.Why/how to make the outer skin more soft? Big hugs,and thank you.

    • I think some eggplants have much tougher skin than others. If you're using small thin eggplants they rarely need to be peeled. For larger ones, I would peel the skin if you don't like that texture. You can kind of tell by poking your fingernail through the skin when it's going to be tough, if that makes sense. I think for fried eggplant where it's cooked quickly at high heat, the skin will usually not soften much. Hope that helps!

    • Thank you so much 'busy lady' for the reply..It does make sense.

  10. I’m gonna make this tomorrow it looks major! Thank youuuu!

  11. Thanks so much for including a couple of my favorite eggplant recipes, and for sharing so many other good ideas for eggplant.
