I haven't made baba ghanoush recently. I should do that. Here is a link to some eggplant recipes. The croquettes look great.

PC I made your dish. We loved it! It  ended  up very stew-like. I used  a poblano instead of the Bell low-pepper and I forgot the lemon. But it was so good.

It is very stew like.  Most likely because I toss the whole can of beans and chick peas instead of measuring plus the olives.  So nice to know you liked it!

I take that chili to picnics and parents can not believe their kids love it!  I've converted many non egg plant eaters with it too!  I always wonder what the lemon juice does as I toss it in.

Oooh. Also forgot the olives. We are low on kalamatas, but I did intend to use what we have. I also changed up the spices a bit. I used  fresh  oregano, thyme and Foxpoint from Penzey's. A bit of nutmeg, too.

I have never had eggplant before, but some of these recipes look really good.  The camp cook made it a lot for vegetarians.  I bet that DSD would really like trying it though.

I made an amazing Eggplant Parm Casserole the other night and have to share. Itbwas sooooo easy. DS and DH loved it. So did I!

Eggplant Parmesan Casserole  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/eggplant-parmesan-casserole/


My adaptations:
I had one eggplant (and I did have to look at the video to see how he cut it)
I didn't have ricotta but had cottage cheese
I didn't measure anything
I used an 8" or 9" square Pyrex dish

We'll definitely make this again!

I would totally make that, but baked eggplant brushed with olive oil and maybe use panko.

Well, you do use some light olive oil when you are making them tender in the pan. But it's very little. They need this step so they can be folded like a taco for the ricotta mixture. I'll say that 1% cottage cheese worked quite well for this. I'd have to compare it to ricotta for  calories and fat when making it in the future, but this week I went purely with what we had on hand.

Do you like sour /pickled/relish-type things?  I can dig up some Russian eggplant recipes.

Let's see if google books search results copy. 

Edited--didn't copy. 

So here's my old lj version:

That may not work, but I'm on the ipad at the moment. 

I've made this with tomatillo, since I can no longer do tomatoes.  I rarely make it, though, due to the histamine load.   Sometimes make the mentioned baklazhannaya ikra, eggplant "caviar".
