Broiled Eggplant on Another Friday Night

Eggplants IMG_3710

Eggplant is really one of my all time favorite foods. Any excuse to make eggplant something and in summertime we can pick them right off of the vine here in our garden – thanks to Ed Lynch! Our friend Victoria Goldfarb called and invited us for another Shabbat dinner and to see Eden and meet Eden’s boyfriend Leo – from Paris. Yes. Lovely evening. I happened to have leftover walnut sauce from the dinner that I made the weekend before for Virginia Ripley and her girlfriends (pre-pre wedding dinner) so the natural thing for me to bring was one of my all time favorite recipes – broiled eggplant with walnut sauce – from my new favorite cookbook “The Savory Way,” by Deborah Madison who, for those not in the know, was the brains behind one of the all-time world’s most amazing vegetarian restaurants called ‘Greens’ in San Francisco.

It’s a restaurant that has withstood the test of time. The first time I ate there was probably 35-years ago. So fine. So amazingly good. So vegetarian all the way. One of my favorite places AND it’s on the water in San Francisco so it’s beautiful that way too. Taking a trip up north is great for so many reasons and this is definitely one of them. Oh and the eggplant is great in a sandwich the day after –with or without the walnut sauce.
