    Pianolady's Note:

    This is my favorite way to enjoy eggplant, and comes from Julia Child's Kitchen -- known as "Puree D'Aubergine A L'ail". This is the first recipe I have posted, and is in response to a request... so I hope you enjoy!! :)

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bake the eggplant: Pierce 2 or 3 places with a sharp knife on one side and then the other.
    2. 2
      Place in an oiled baking dish in the middle of a 425F oven for 25- 30 minutes until thoroughly soft to the touch.
    3. 3
      --or-- Steam the eggplant: Place eggplant in a vegetable rack or sieve and set in a pan of boiling water, not letting the water tough the eggplant; cover tightly and steam 15 to 20 minutes or longer, depending on the size.
    4. 4
      Be careful not to overcook.
    5. 5
      When the eggplant is soft all over, cut in half lengthwise and scrape the flesh from the skin.
    6. 6
      Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, add the garlic and cook slowly a minute; then add the eggplant.
    7. 7
      Beat and stir with a wooden spoon for several minutes to break the eggplant meat into a puree.
    8. 8
      Beat in salt and pepper to taste, then add drops of lemon juice, to taste.
    9. 9
      May be cooked in advance: Just before serving, reheat and fold in the parsley, and turn into a hot vegetable dish.

      So good! I wasn't sure how to eat it... So I put it into baby Bella mushrooms topped with a tiny bit of bread crumbs

      I really enjoyed the flavor of this dish. Baked the eggplant earlier in the day and did the last steps of preparation right before servine. Very simple, easy to prepare dish. Would make a great side dish for a spicey main course as it is fairly neutral and not an overpowering flavor at all. Texture was perfect for me, creamy just the way I like eggplant.
