The lovely eggplant
Can anyone guess what these are? Slices of eggplant with a mix of onions, garlic, miso and honey on top. I got the recipe here. It was absolutely delicious. Even the husband raved about them!
We served the eggplant with some leftover spinach couscous, in order to use it up. But the recipe suggests serving over brown rice and a fried egg with the yolk still runny. We exchanged the brown rice for the couscous but did take the advice of serving with the fried egg. So good, in a very unexpected way.
Now you know how I feel about fried eggs (or zuppa zuppa eggs. Or dippy eggs.) They demand toast in order to dip in the egg, right? Well, Chris had brought home some of Panera's amazing Three Cheese Bread. To die for.
I had leftover eggplant and couscous at work the next day. Love food that works as leftovers, don't you?
