Fairytale Eggplant


 “Life itself is the most wonderful fairytale.” ~Hans Christian Anderson

These are fairytale eggplants and if you can find them at your local farmers market, you MUST try them. They are small (no bigger than my hand), have a delicate, non-bitter flavor and cook to a perfectly creamy texture. I made a simple rustic tomato sauce (out of farmers market cherry tomatoes, garlic and home-grown basil) and sauteed them along with some baby pattypan squash and enjoyed one of my favorite meals of the summer! Try them if you have the chance!
