And we ate it. Last night. And it was delicious.
I am dumb and forgot to take a picture of our home-grown eggplant baby before I cooked it, but I took some of the whole dinner.
I sliced the eggplant lengthwise and coated it in a mix of cornmeal and nutritional yeast and put it on the grill. It was perfectly creamy and tender, and the cornmeal gave it a nice texture. I served this with a grilled piece of tofu and asparagus.
I topped the tofu and eggplant in an extremely delicious pepper and onion sauce I whipped up. Very spicy! There were about 5 kinds of hot peppers in the sauce, including a few from our own garden. I caramelized the sweet, little local onion that we had, threw the peppers in, and simmered it in a little apple cider vinegar and a splash of soy sauce. I wanted to add a dash of nutritional yeast to thicken it, but ended up dumping in way more than I intended...so the sauce became a little beige. It ended up being extremely delicious, though. There will definitely be more variations on this sauce.
I'm not sure what I'm making for dinner tonight, but I will try my hardest to remember to take pictures. I'm really trying, guys. Just really, really forgetful.
