Curried Eggplant

Alright, back to the small plates!

We're in prime eggplant season right now (I'm talking about the actual vegetable guys), and I have received soooo much eggplant in my FARMSHARE (it also doesn't help that I can go home with all the extras). So much so that I don't know what to do with it.

I might just make more of this Curried Eggplant and put it on everything. It's super tasty with rich, umami (savory) flavor, and it takes really very little time to make.

Use it as a side dish or throw it together with some other veggies and grains for a filling bowl! Or maybe on top of a salad? It's your call!
