Green Curry Eggplant


Have you ever stopped to think about the name eggplant? Someone just decided to stick the words “egg” and “plant” together?  Well thanks to Cooking Light, I recently found out that eggplant got its name from the first varieties of its kind, which were white, round, and egg-size. Makes sense, case closed.

On to more important matters, cooking it. Eggplant can be used in an Asian stir-fry, classic Italian dish or even as a meat substitution. It’s pretty easy to find a way to incorporate eggplant into a dish or create a meal around it. Enjoy some of our favorite “plants that used to looks like eggs” recipes.
