Or if you live in my native land, an aubergine! I love them whatever they're called and today I wanted to try one of Susan Voisin's recipes from Fat Free Vegan. Called Creamy Creole Eggplant Casserole, I followed the recipe except for adding mushrooms. My daughter hates mushrooms and will practically refuse to eat her dinner if she suspects they are in there. Very straight forward to cook, very yummy to munch on, and you can't ask for more than that lol!
