Oh the embarrasment!!!
SO for my new to me vegetable, I went to the store and bought my purple veggie with the intention of making this recipe, Rutabaga fries. Today is new veggie day. I pulled it out of the bag and viola ...................... WHAT this is an eggplant, not a rutabaga. See its even printed on the tag. DUH!!!
What does this tell you about my week. BUSY!!
Yep all the above!!
OK. change of plans. Ive never had an eggplant either. SO, ok. what do I do with THIS purple veggie? I cut off the top. Looks a lot like a squash. I LOVE grilled squash!!! Feels kinda spongey.
So I peeled it, Cut it up, Tossed in some vegetable oil (MY EVOO IS GONE) and sprinkled with some sea salt. Popped it in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes each side.
Result: They were actuallly very good!! Should have been baked a few more minutes on each side.
Next week: Rutabaga!!
