Basil Eggplant

Hello Full Belly Friends,

I have been a Full Belly CSA member for several years now and have to admit that each summer I dreaded the onslaught of eggplant.  Try as I might, I couldn’t find any recipes that my family or I liked, so I did the best I could barbecuing slices of eggplant and slipping it into my sandwiches or roasting it and blending it into traditional hummus so the chickpeas would hide the flavor and texture.  But I recently found a recipe in the SF Chronicle (sourced from and it changed my eggplant world!  Now I look forward to seeing eggplant in my box and don’t mind that I’m the only one in my family who’ll eat it.  Check it out (photo is awful, but recipe is great - and it uses several items from this week’s box) and share it on your website if you want:
