@teamfat That Sichuanese recipe works great, I am making something similar quite often
@ordo Japanese style, yes! Eggplant dengaku rocks!
Also, pasta alla norma would be a nice and quick recipe.
Thought I'd finally explain why no more dishes from me followed. I was a little disappointed to find out, shortly after starting this, that eggplant was one of the restricted foods on my diet for now. Since it was one of the easier on the list to eliminate I simply cut it out altogether. I had been eating an awful lot of store-bought eggplant carponta and various other preparations, hummus, salsa and my mock-risotto (high-collegian chicken stock added to ordinary cooked rice to create the creaminess), all gone now along with a number of others.
I will be back here eventually though and I hope others continue to contribute. And thanks again for all the great suggestions.
