    1. Throw it into a Thai curry. Use it in an antipasto w/ good bread.

      1. If you only have a few pieces, top each with provolone or mozzarella, add tomato sauce, reheat stove-top with lid on, slice open a crusty loaf, make sandwiches. If you have enough to layer, make a small lasagne with ricotta filling.

        1. Make a pasta sauce w/ roasted tomatoes and onions.

          1. Caponata:
            1 tablespoon olive oil
            1/3 cup black olives, pitted and chopped
            1 med eggplant, diced
            1/2 cup chopped red onion
            1/4 cup parsley
            2 cloves garlic, minced
            1/4 cup red wine vinegar
            2 large tomatoes, diced
            Salt & FGBP

            Chop up your left over eggplant....
            Sautee onion & garlic
            Add all ingredients & stir
            Cover and cook for a few minutes.
            Taste for seasoning and correct to your liking.

            You can add other veggies like celery, capers or anything you want really. It can be served as a side dish, as part of a sandwich, a chutney.... anyway you want.
