Did you know that eggplant isn’t technically a veggie? While we typically call it a vegetable in the kitchen, it’s actually a berry! Yes, that’s right—a berry. However, unlike most berries, you won’t find this one in many desserts. We like to stick with savory main courses, snacks, and appetizers when we’re using eggplant.
While we love a good Eggplant Parmesan recipe, there are so many more ways to enjoy this…fruit. We’ve compiled eight of our favorite ways to enjoy eggplant for you here, including that tasty eggplant parm. Of course, we’ve tossed in a few recipes, like ratatouille, lasagna, and even a yummy dip for good measure.
