Festive Aubergines

I was quite focused in updated two times a week my blog But things happens..... And I must been absent for days


Anyway I love fresh herbs and basil is one of my favorites, and I am a big eggplant fan too (also knowing as aubergine). Aubergine is really quite meaty! Not just one for veggies, meat lovers (like my husband) will enjoy it too! The recipe here is from the Silver Spoon Cookbook, a recent acquisition of mine. The entire cookbook, the cookbook for Italian housewives, (over 2,000 recipes) is very practical, and I would especially recommend it for those who like straightforward recipes without a lot of fussing and ingredient lists until 20 items. This cookbook is a real Italian cookbook

Vero !!!

This sounds like my kind of meal Sylvia! I love both eggplants and basil! YUM! I have eggplant on my market list for this week (and basil in a pot on my porch!)

That sounds perfectly delicious and balanced. And I love your basil photo, heavenly!

Bet it's fun cooking in your new kitchen :)

Oh for the love of food! said...

Sylvia, eggplant is one of my favorite veges too, it's so rich and creamy. The only downside is that it soaks up oil like a sponge!

That basil! What a gorgeous back-lit shot, Sylvia. Lovely eggplant recipe, too. Perfect for fresh summer veggies available here now.


Sylvia esta fué mi cena de anoche, fué verlas y me dije, estas las tengo que probar. Debo de decirte que quedaron deliciosas por no decir el aroma que desprenden la albahaca y el ajo, un manjar. Me gustó muchisimo.

Gracias y besotes.
