The end of summer is upon us, which means the farmers markets are starting to look a little purple. Eggplants in every shape and size are sprouting up in all the farm stands, begging to be picked from the bunch and brought home for a delicious vegetarian dish. Most of the time eggplants tend to make their dinnertime debut fried in breadcrumbs and smothered in cheese, but eggplants don’t need to contribute to an unhealthy meal. In fact, they are much better served in a dish that highlights their hearty flavor! We love this recipe for Quinoa Cakes with Eggplant Ragu. It’s a vegetarian dish that is sure to please even your most carnivorous dinner guest!
