Recently, I was fortunate enough to have some family from Israel staying with us for a few weeks over the holidays, and I got to spend a lot of time watching them work magic in the kitchen. My mother-in-law can cook with eggplants like nobody’s business, and I was determined to master her delicious baba ganoush recipe. In case you’ve never heard of baba ganoush, it’s a middle eastern eggplant dip that is one of the most delicious foods I’ve ever had.

One of the things I’ve learned over the course of many trips to Israel is the glorious, deliciousness of the eggplant. Growing up, I had never, EVER been served anything with eggplant, and now I am sad about the many years I missed out on. I love cooking eggplant now in a variety of ways, but one of my favorite eggplant recipes is this simple, yet savory Roasted Eggplant with Tahini Sauce Recipe.

What a gorgeous salad to serve with any meal! I love all the rich colors and textures in this Roasted Eggplant Salad with Goat Cheese….perfect for any season.

This salad could be enjoyed as a side dish or even as a main course.

It is absolutely delicious…so full of flavor. And it looks just lovely sitting in that bright red pepper and shallot sauce….almost too pretty to eat.

One of my favorite comfort food dishes, a traditional eggplant parmesan recipe, can really rack up the Weight Watchers Points. But my light Eggplant Parmesan has all the delicious and traditional flavors but for just 5 Points + per serving! And did I mention that this is made with three kinds of cheese?

Soon my husband and I will be taking a trip to Israel to visit his family, and I am beyond excited for all the Middle Eastern feasting I’m about to embark upon. One of my absolute favorite Middle Eastern recipes is a Moroccan Eggplant Salad that my mother in law makes. OMG, is it good. […]
