In this video, we learn how to cook with eggplant. A good eggplant has smooth skin and is firm, but slightly soft. Different types of eggplants will taste differently, so you can cook them in different recipes. First, peel and salt your eggplant, then let it drain and press it for 90 minutes before you cook it. Add olive oil onto the top of it, then cook the eggplant on a hot grill. When it's finished, this makes a great side to any meal. You can incorporate eggplant into a number of different recipes. Have fun with the different foods you make and enjoy creating dishes!
