In Season: Eggplant

Eggplant, aubergine, whatever you want to call it—we're just happy that this tasty veggie is season. It's incredibly versatile, delicious grilled, roasted, sauteed, or pureed; it's hearty enough to bulk up a plate, yet just as delicious in a light salad. Eggplants are great for soaking up flavor in any dish, but at their peak, are perhaps best enjoyed simply, maybe grilled with a dash of salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

To celebrate, here are some recipes to try starring the eggplant.
