Microwaved Honey Eggplant

Recipe for  August 21, 2011

You either love it or you don’t.  Here’s a very simple way to prepare eggplant. It might even attract those who want to learn to love it.


!/2 cup chopped parsley*                            2 tablespoons honey*

1/2 cup breadcrumbs*                                1 minced garlic clove*

3 tablespoons olive oil                                 Pinch of salt

1 large or 2 medium eggplants*                     Lemon juice


Combine the chopped parsley and breadcrumbs with the olive oil, honey, minced garlic clove, and a pinch of salt.  Cut one large or 2 medium eggplants crosswise into one-inch slices; then score the top of each slice.  Put the slices in a dish and spread the breadcrumb mixture over the tops, pressing it into the slits.  Partially cover with wax paper and microwave on high power for about 5 minutes.  Remove the paper and cook another 2 to 3 minutes, until very soft.  Sprinkle with lemon juice and serve with yogurt on the side.
