Did some Rattatouile a la Remy last night (i.e. the rattatouile from "Rattatouile"):
Two things became evident, I really shouldn't have put in those extra tomato slices, they didn't really work. Also I'm not a huge fan of Aubergine. Zucchini I now officially love though.
Not a fan of aubergine? What is WRONG WITH YOU?! It is only the finests veg on the planet!
I do understand, it has an unusual texture, and can be rubbery if it's not cooked properly. If you ever feel like giving it one more try, though, I'd suggest the Italian dish, eggplant parmigiana -- the aubergine/eggplant just melts in your mouth.
