Aubergine is one of my favorite vegetables. I found these small, Sicilian aubergine at the Price Chopper market during an old, retired people’s “balade” in Matamoras, P.A. My husband and I go on rides when, although there’s plenty to do at the house, we don’t want to do it. It’s carefree, aimless driving through very pretty landscapes of forest, rivers and streams. Pennsylvania is beautiful.
Of course I had no idea what I was going to do with the aubergine but that doesn’t matter, it’s the shopping that counts, says Rosemary the non-frugal 🙂
I browned the aubergine, stir fried some ground lamb and added leftover squash and black bean garlic sauce with hefty tablespoons of red chilli sauce and mirin for sweetness. I served this over fresh udon noodles. Et voila!
