Aubergine, or eggplant, is in season at Prois Farm, JR Organics and Suzie’s Farm at the North Park Thursday Farmers’ Market, and it’s one of our favorite summer vegetables. We can’t resist a classic eggplant parmigiana with fresh basil and, of course, real Parmigiano-Reggiano from Taste Cheese. If you have the patience and the need to impress, Japanese eggplant from Suzie’s Farm and summer squashes from Kawano Farms are perfect for this gorgeous ratatouille recipe; yes it’s the one from that movie! Pick up fresh parsley, lemons from Paradise Valley Ranch, and extra virgin olive oil from The California Olive for this baba ghanoush; don’t forget a crusty baguette from Belen Bakery for dipping. What will you make with eggplant? Give us some egg-cellent ideas!
