"I should start by saying that I hate eggplant. It has always given me the creeps, but after delivery upon delivery of the bulbous purple things from my CSA, I decided that it was time to conquer them. I figured frying them would go a long way in their favor but didn't want to go the expected "Eggplant Parm" route. I found a base recipe I liked in Veganomicon and then spent some time experimenting with coatings, stuffings and sauces. I un-veganed it, crunchied it up a bit with panko and added fresh basil to the stuffing and the eggplant is now my friend. My friend that I eat. And like."
