Wanna incorporate more eggplant into your cooking? Check out my 8 must-try vegan eggplant recipes below.
As far as “meaty” vegetables go, eggplant is pretty up there. It works really well as a vegan main course – replacing actual meat in many scenarios – and thanks to its spongy texture, it’s great at absorbing other flavors.
Truth be told, though, eggplant can be polarizing. It’s not uncommon for people to proclaim they simply refuse to eat it. But in my experience, that usually means they just haven’t tried a great eggplant dish yet. And not to brag, but I’ve been known to convert several eggplant-haters with the dishes below.
Depending on how you cook eggplant, it can be soft and buttery, or hearty and chewy. If you’re a plant-based cook – or are transitioning to a more vegetarian diet – I highly recommend experimenting with a handful of vegan eggplant recipes to see what you prefer. Check out the 8 options for any occasion below…
