Indeed! Possibly my favorite vegetable, though spinach, asparagus, and brussels sprouts vie for the top spot. The first time I cooked eggplant by myself was a disaster, though! I learned to cook most foods with my mom, but even though she made eggplant before, I somehow missed that lesson. I put a generous tablespoon of olive oil in the skillet the way I would to saute any vegetable, chopped the eggplant, and tossed it in. Little did I know that eggplant is basically a giant sponge and that my spoonful of olive oil would be sopped up in seconds! I kept adding oil and water to the pan and ended up with a gooey, oily mess.
