So we are pretty adventurous eaters in general. But as we were walking around the produce section earlier this week we were looking at some vegetables that neither one of us have tried. So in the same spirit of Throwback Thursday or Flex Friday we decided why can’t there be a Weird Veg Wednesday. So we are going to try to use a vegetable that we have never eaten before or at least prepare a vegetable in a way that is a little outside the norm. You can follow our posts either on here or on Instagram and Facebook using the #weirdvegwednesday.
For week 1 we grabbed eggplant. I’ve never cooked eggplant so I had to do a little research on preparations. You have your classic Eggplant Parmesan then you have a lot of North African and Middle Eastern preparations. I haven’t dabbled much in the Middle Eastern stuff so I figured I would play it safe and stay Italian, and settled on a stuffed eggplant. You could use the marinara sauce recipe for any italian dish from spaghetti to lasagna it is my stock marinara sauce then I just added a little extra stuff for the stuffing. If you follow the ingredient list for the marinara sauce you will have some leftover, which is a good thing in my book. Try it out, hope you enjoy it!
