We can’t say enough good things about these eggplant recipes. We use this all-star ingredient year-round, but we get especially excited about it during its peak season from late summer to early fall. Eggplant’s mild taste is transformed by the flavors around it, making it a truly versatile piece of produce. Here, we rounded up the very best eggplant dishes, including baba ghanoush, eggplant Parmesan, ratatouille, fritters, and many more. These are our absolute favorites, and we think they’ll quickly become yours too.
