Get egg-cited about eggplant

Most people enjoy their eggplant breaded, fried, smothered in melty cheese and doused in sauce. No doubt, that’s delish, but there’s another tasty way to use this notable nightshade: as eggplant hamburger buns. Its high water-and-nutrient content, (and low calorie count) make it perfect for summer. To prepare eggplant buns, cut into thick slices and season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper (and any other preferred spices). Coat a pan with nonstick oil spray and sauté about 2 minutes on each side (don’t overcook or they’ll become too soft and mushy). Let ‘em cool and pile on the tasty loot.
