    I really like eggplant, but I can get in a rut with it. This looks like a great new recipe to switch things up this summer when eggplant and mint are abundant in my garden.

    I’ve never actually had eggplant! I’ve been meaning to try it and actually bought one awhile ago, but it went bad before I had the chance to cook something up. I will definitely keep this recipe in mind!
