Sometimes they are bitter of the seeds gross me out but I have really learned to like them more in my advanced age. The baby ones in azn foods are usually best.

fyi eggplants are fruits botanically speaking

max max max max, Sunday, 12 July 2009 19:28 (eleven years ago) link

tho corn is a grain and not a veggie so i guess im wrong too, botanically

max max max max, Sunday, 12 July 2009 19:29 (eleven years ago) link

if corn being my favorite vegetable is botanically wrong i dont want to be botanically right

max max max max, Sunday, 12 July 2009 19:30 (eleven years ago) link

eh i meant the broad definition of vegetables, not the botanical one. so corn can be a vegetable i guess. i haven't bought any yet this year. maybe next week i will.

max, have you had cancha? it is a great way to eat corn!

Cancha, a popular snack in Peru and Ecuador, is made with a special type of large-kerneled corn called maíz chulpe or maíz cancha chulpe. The dried kernels are tossed with oil and toasted in a hot skillet until they are browned and puffed. A simple sprinkling of salt and the cancha is ready to eat. Cancha is often served with ceviche or a cold beer.

like crack.

my favorite broad definition vegetable is potato chips

lxy, Sunday, 12 July 2009 20:08 (eleven years ago) link

i like potato chips too, esp. salt and vinegar

the little ones, not necessarily azn, are good. the farmer's market i go to has them just about every week. there's this dish with tomatoes, breadcrumbs, penne & eggplant that we make sometimes that kicks butt.

could you post the recipe, t.s., because that sounds like something i want to make.

this is almost the exact same recipe, except ours includes 1 1/2 lbs of ripe plum tomatoes, sliced about 1/4 inch thick

so when you get to the part where you are putting the bottom layer in the oven dish, you use 1/2 of the fresh tomato slices for that instead of the sauce, then half the breadcrumbs on top, and then follow the rest of the recipe.then your top layer will be the other half of the fresh tomatoes with breadcrumbs on top.

it comes from a very good cookbook called the flavors of puglia by nancy harmon jenkins that gets a lot of use in our house.

hey that looks pretty good t. silaviver

spite n ease (harbl), Monday, 13 July 2009 11:16 (eleven years ago) link

yes it does, thank you t.s., i will make it and report back.

estela, Monday, 13 July 2009 12:12 (eleven years ago) link

maybe i will get that cookbook from the library sometime. my eggplant recipe is from "silk road vegetarian," which i am very pleased with. i made a mung bean/lettuce salad from it last night.

spite n ease (harbl), Monday, 13 July 2009 13:08 (eleven years ago) link

I made ratatouille without eggplant last night.

te,he (tehresa), Monday, 13 July 2009 18:54 (eleven years ago) link

I love eggplant and am glad to not be alone in this.

jaq, Monday, 13 July 2009 21:18 (eleven years ago) link
