We’re not talking about the jar of sauce you grew up with. . .
Eggplant is one of the easiest things you can grow in an EarthBox® gardening system, often very prolific. There are so many different varieties and colors, not just the traditional deep purple found at the grocery store—you can find (or grow) them in white, magenta, green—even red and yellow! They’re also a great source of dietary fiber, and are packed full of vitamins and minerals.
Ragù vs. Ragoût
You might be thinking, what’s the difference? Though pronounced the same, they are slightly different. A traditional French ragoût is a classic stew that may be served as the main course. Italian ragù (derived from the original French term) is a meat-based sauce used to dress pasta (don’t worry, vegetarians and vegans–we have a substitution for you, too!).
Since eggplants produce rapidly, it’s easy to become inundated with them. . .but you don’t have to consume them all at once. You can freeze eggplant (sliced or cubed) for a later time, or make this recipe and freeze it in batches.
If you’ve never had eggplant, or are unsure how to prepare it, this recipe is simple to follow, and is a yummy way to incorporate this delicious veggie into your diet.
On the other hand, if you find yourself making the same old Eggplant Parmesan over and over again, this recipe offers a new twist that is sure to please.
