Local Cooking at Home: Turkish Eggplant

Turkish eggplant from Bhodi Tree Farm at Abington Square Farmers Market via Carlin Greenstein

Now that the CSA season is upon us and local farmers’ markets are popping up, we are delighted to have LES resident and chef Carlin Greenstein contributing a weekly seasonal recipe. Her recipe for Turkish eggplant is below; for more ideas, read the Local Cooking at Home archives here.

When I need a little something to supplement my CSA share I head West to the Bodhitree Farm at the adorable Abington Square Greenmarket on Saturday mornings.  The charming farmer, Nevia No, grows and sells some of the most spectacular Asian varieties of local greens and baby vegetables I have ever seen.
