Aubergine Inspiration

I don’t know about anyone else but I love the colour and I love the vegetable and I love to cook and eat aubergine. Maybe someone on the other side of the pond could tell me why you call them eggplants?

There are so many gorgeous recipes available for using these fine vegetables and I will include my favourites here.

I love babaganoush and it is easy to find around here -- but the eggplant with lemongrass and coconut milk sounds devine. Yum! I also have a salad recipe for roasted eggplant with chickpeas, mint and feta that is really good.

I didn't know what aubergines or courgettes were for the longest time since we call them eggplant and zucchini. :)

Have a great week. Tammy

i suppose because someone decided they looked like eggs? Plus, they used to white or yellow, not purple.

Eggplant! How delicious and your photos are gorgeous! Did you know it is actually a fruit, not a vegetable just like the tomato. They name eggplant comes from a variety from Eurppe, yellow/ white and resembled a goose egg.
