We begin our list of eggplant recipes with a torta milanesa, which features crispy, thin-sliced eggplant in place of the usual chicken or pork. See recipe. This vegetable recipe is a fairly classic ratatouille—the Provençal dish lets summer produce like eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini shine—but it also (thankfully) cuts a few corners. See recipe. This top-tier eggplant Parmigiana is not exactly a recipe we’d call quick or easy, but your efforts will be rewarded when you pull from the oven a dish of custardy eggplant slathered in tangy sauce with a crispy, cheesy top.
