Sicilian Stuffed Eggplant

Eggplant is such an integral part of Sicilian cuisine and can be found in many dishes from appetizers and pastas to sauces and main courses. On our Foodie Trips to Sicily, eggplant finds it’s way onto the menu most days. My stuffed eggplant is a rather rustic dish in which an eggplant is cut lengthwise in half and stuffed with an incredibly flavorful mixture of ground pork, spices, olives and raisins. My Fennel Spice Mix is also great on fish and shellfish.

Roasted Pepper and Eggplant Salad

This is a light and refreshing salad that we serve on our Foodie trips to Tuscany. Freshly roasted and charred peppers have so much more flavor than the jarred or canned ones that it is worth every minute spent over the open flame. Grilled eggplant and peppery Arugula are added and then tossed with a simple red wine dressing.
