    Default Eggplant??????

    I am craving eggplant on my pizza that I am going to make tonight, and I am wondering what is the best way to prepare it???

    do I wash it and then oil it a little then salt it a little and grill/roast it for a while then put it on my pizza or do I just pop it on there???



    I have never in my life brought an eggplant let alone prepared one but in the area we use to live the pizza shop put it on my pizza and I just loved it so I am really REALLY wanting it atm.

    Thanks for any help its appreciated

    Hey Amy

    Mmmm...eggplant!

    I generally cut into into thin-ish slices...coat (generously) with olive oil and salt and then grill on the bbq...

    When it's 3/4 cooked (just starting to go a bit soft and mushy), put it on the pizza with the rest of the toppings...

    For eggplant to taste really good, I think it needs good amounts of oil and salt!

    Enjoy!

    Ahhh great thankyou,

    Yeah I was unsure of how much to put on it as I have heard so many things but I agree with you, the pizza in question here LOL I remember the eggplant being quite oily but it was so yummy hence the reason I want it so much,

    do you think I would be able to get a similar effect in a really hot oven on a baking tray as I dont have access to a BBQ atm?

    ooopppssss I waaaaayyyyyyyyyyy way wayyyyyyy over salted it and it was just to gross to think about putting on my masterpeice pizza for tea tonight LOL so luckily I had only done half of the eggplant as I didnt realise how much it shrunk down so I chucked the salty batch and have put the rest on and its tasting yummy.

    Thanks for your tips gals I have got the grill out and they are raring to go

    my tummy is rumbling.
