A Quick and Easy Way to Enjoy Eggplant
Slice an eggplant in half lengthwise and then put it, cut-side down, on a cookie sheet. Broil it under the broiler in the oven until the skin is wrinkly. Take it out of the oven and let it cool until it is cool enough to handle. Then peel the skin off. Dice the roasted eggplant pulp and add to your favorite pasta sauce.
Helpful hint: If you are going to roast or microwave an eggplant or a potato or any other fruit or vegetable with a skin on it, slice it open or at least poke holes in the skin. Otherwise, the expanding steam may cause the vegetable to explode and create a huge mess.
