Here is a link to another of my favorite eggplant recipes, Baba Ghanoush, which is a Middle Eastern eggplant dip similar to hummus only made with eggplant instead of chick peas.

BUMP

My aubergine are finally making an appearance. This tasty dish is going to be on the menu.
I love me some good baba ganoush! If you have never eaten this delight, take the time to give it a whirl. (in reference to the Sufi dervishes).What a Face

I first learned of Baba Ghanoush while watching Hans Conried play Uncle Tonoose on Danny Thomas' Make Room for Daddy show. Thanks for the happy memory.
Good luck and bon apetit!

Fun to grow eggplant beauties and we often find that folks do not know what to do with them.
This is another easy recipe - cutting the eggplant in half, roasting in the oven and going from there.
Pair it with some local farmers market bread or better yet - your best homemade bread!

This name even sounds delicious, have the recipe now and next season, I' grow some eggplant.
Tried it this year, due to all my testing it really did not do well.

Baba Ghanoush Empty eggplant ideas

Post  kauairosina on 7/30/2015, 2:40 pm

I've never noticed seeds either.  Could your eggplant have gotten to mature? 

One of our current favorite things to do is marinate slices (crosswise or lengthwise) in either olive oil, parmesan cheese, garlic flakes and other herbs and then grill them on the barbee, or throw them on the barbee and brush them with a mixture of balsamic vinegar and olive oil and herbs.  

Since the rest of us do not notice seeds pick some of your babies earlier and see if that solves the problem.

Baba Ghanoush Empty Eggplant everywhere

Post  carmelita on 7/30/2015, 4:01 pm

This year I am renovating my garden area so did not plant much. However, there are eggplants sprouting up all over the place. In the crack in the sidewalk, under a tree, in a flower pot, everywhere! Who plants this stuff??!! Guess they escaped while I was cleaning seeds to trade. Oops! Embarassed

Love the stuff. I prefer to use the long skinny Japanese eggplants that have small seeds. Rather than just char them up on the BBQ, I briefly smoke them with some oak wood chips, lube them up with olive oil, and them finish them off at a higher temp indirect on my Webber.

Has anyone made the first recipe at the top? It's that time of the summer when the eggplants are getting ripe. Has anyone frozen it?

My eggplants are still in the early-blossom stage, where they've been all summer. Sad

CN, Try spraying the blossoms with apple juice to get them to set. The juice gives off ethylene gas which stimulates the plant's into setting fruit. I've used it on stubborn tomatoes (same family as eggplants) that won't set because it's just too cold at night- even works on orchids!

I've made two batches of baba ganoush so far and used this very simple recipe both times:

Haven't tried freezing them, can't be bothered with the steps involved, lol.

I forgot, if eggplants are like a majority of the Solaniums (NIGHTSHADE!!!) family, they tend to give up fruiting when the temps are higher than 90 degrees. That may explain why Countrynatural's plants are not producing. Shade then so they are not in direct sun between 10 am and 2 pm and see if that helps.

YS,  You may be right.  My eggplant is shaded except for early morning and keeps on producing.  Husband did not pick up tahani and a lemon, so I'm just eating the roasted eggplant.

Fiz, thanks for another baba recipe. It has some good links.

I hope I can get some eggplant to try Baba Ganoush. Not looking good so far. 

I like when the writer of the "Simple Baba Ganoush" recipe wrote, "Muahahaha, I love breaking the rules."

I think my (Japanese) Millionaire eggplants are too sweet for this dish. I had 2 pounds of them and thought I would try them. Nope, better as roasted and eaten with the skin on.
