My family and I participate in a weekly vegetable basket program offered by an urban farm. The vegetables are fresh, sustainable and cultivated 10 minutes from our home. My daughters and I have visited the farm many times and we know the farmer and his family. If you have the opportunity to participate in this kind of program, these initiatives are fantastic.
Each week as we’re putting the vegetables away, we figure out what we’re going to make with them. The truth is my daughters weren’t at all pleased when they saw the eggplants. It’s not the most popular vegetable, and we mothers know it; however, when prepared crispy and served with their favorite sauce, marinara, the dish truly hits the mark.
I invite you to try this crispy eggplant recipe.
