Was roaming around the produce section at Sprouts the other day and saw these random purple, oblong-ish things that I didn’t recognize at first. Stopped and then determined what they were. Whoa — baby eggplant. So neat. They were 1.5″-2″ long and just too good to pass up. And, they were a whopping 5 for $1.
To cook, decided to slice them in half, longways, season with some Italian herbs, drizzle with olive oil and put on the grill.
Cooked for 10+ minutes, turning once. So good. You could eat them in one bite, scoop out the middle, pop the inside out by pressing from the skin. They had just a bit of a different taste from regular eggplant. They would be perfect to serve as appetizers because they can totally be finger food.
