Eggplant pizzas
taste great and
look cute, too.

EGGPLANT ED
TO SALT OR NOT TO SALT? To draw out
moisture, some cooks lay salted eggplant slices
on paper towels (in a colander or pan) for 20 to
30 minutes before patting dry. This may help the
eggplant absorb less oil during deep-frying, but
this step isn't necessary for most recipes.
HANDLE WITH CARE Although it feels firm, an
eggplant lasts for only about five days in the refrigerator. Look for ones that have bright green stems
(indicating freshness) and smooth flesh that's free
of brown spots. Eggplant won't freeze well unless it
has been cooked down into a sauce or relish.
PUT DOWN THE PEELER Many of eggplant's
nutrients are found in the skin, which also provides
extra fiber, so leave it on unless you're making a dip.
AN EGGPLANT BY ANY OTHER NAME ...
It's known as a brinjal in India, where it originated,
aubergine in England and France, eggfruit in
Australia, garden egg in West Africa and brown
jolly (likely a variation on brinjal) in parts of
the Caribbean.
GO BEYOND THE PURPLE The large, dark
purple globe eggplant found in most grocery
stores has a shape that works well for slicing into
sturdy rounds. But smaller varieties include Thai
(green and round) and Japanese (slender and
light purple), both of which can be diced and
used in curries and stir-fries.
