Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Special Extra
Sprinkle with chopped fresh tarragon before baking as directed.
Tip 2
Substitute
Prepare using lean ground beef.
Tip 3
How to Purchase Eggplant
Eggplant with fewer seeds have the best flavor and tend to be less bitter tasting. When purchasing, choose small- or medium-sized eggplant, since large, over-mature ones are likely to contain more seeds. Avoid eggplants that are too soft.
