One Eggplant

I made an eggplant casserole the other day and have one eggplant left over. What's something easy and tasty I can do with it to ensure it doesn't go to waste?

  1. You didn't say how large, but suggestions here, esp the eggplant cut into "noodles":

    1. Slice, briefly marinate in a sesame-soy-ginger mixture, and grill it. Is this a globe eggplant or one of the smaller Asian varieties?

      1. You could make a couple sandwiches - slice the eggplant in 1/2 to 1/4 inch slices, season lightly, and grill or roast (a George Foreman grill works really well). Add some sliced mushrooms, roast peppers, possibly zucchini cooked similarly, slather your bread of choice with a little pesto or fresh basil or other savory spread, put in sliced provolone or swiss cheese and make a panino or otherwise toasted sandwich.

        1. Roasted eggplant dip?

          Grilled in rounds and make little napoleons with boccacini, roasted tomatoes and basil?
