Week 7

I was shocked to see we are in week seven.  I skipped week six, not intentionally but it happens.  Nice share this week:

Lettuce greens
Carrots
Cauliflower
Eggplant
squash/zukes
tomatoes
garlic
cukes?

So, by way of recipes, let's talk about eggplant.  This is a vegetable that it is possible to mess up I think, in the sense that if it goes wrong the texture can be funny in a way that one can't mess up a zucchini.  That said, we need not be afraid.  Let's start with my favorite baba ganoush recipe, which also uses the garlic from this week.  The recipe is from the vegetarian epicure book two, a cook book we go back to and flip through alot to try new things:

the key is the taratour sauce which is:

1 cup tahini
3 cloves garlic crushed or finely minced
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/2 cold water

mix all that and youve got taratour sauce

prick eggplant with fork in several places and bake at 400 for 45 mins or until it is soft all over, let eggplant cool and scrape out pulp into food processor, add

1/4 cup taratour sauce (so you'll have lots left over if you followed above recipe)
1/4 lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1/4 pepper
1 tbs plus 1 tsp olive oil

blend that briefly and voila, perfect baba ganoush. enjoy
