49 eggplant recipes (because everyone loves eggplant)

From pasta to parmigiana, curries to stir-fries, now's a better time than any to put eggplant on the menu.

Miso teriyaki eggplant
Luckily for us, eggplants have a long season in Australia so there are plenty of opportunities to work them into your culinary repertoire. Unleash the vegetable's smoky, earthy flavours in a charred eggplant dip (we have three variations), or in our barbecued eggplant salad with goat's curd, mint and pomegranate.
For longer cook times, the Sichuanese fish-fragrant eggplant braise swill have your lips tingling with lingering spice, while the impossibly soft eggplant parmigiana looks impressive, and tastes just so. Need a quick fix for your eggplant recipe cravings? We recommend the eggplant stir-fry with tamarind, or the stew of okra, turmeric and eggplant. Come picnic season, we make a bee-line for Danielle Alvarez's summer vegetable tian (featuring eggplant, of course).
