Before hitting the stovetop or grill take your sliced eggplant pieces for a spin in the microwave. Pre-cooking the eggplant (in a single layer, on a paper towel-lined plate) for about five minutes helps collapse the spongey structure, which will prevent it from absorbing quite so much oil.
Eggplant is delicious, but it also has numerous health benefits. It contains fiber, potassium, vitamin C and B6 which are known to help lower the risk of heart disease.
Salting is not necessary but can remove excess liquid. If you do decide to salt your eggplant Let the salted eggplant sit for at least 30 minutes. You will see beads of moisture start to form on the surface of the eggplant as it sits. Some of the pieces may start to look a little shriveled; this is fine. When you're ready to cook, rinse the eggplant under cold water to remove the excess salt.
Eggplant pairs well with: Garlic, Parmesan cheese, Feta cheese, Onions, Zucchini, Bell Peppers, Basil, Olive Oil and Parsley.
