Eggplant season is in full swing, and we couldn’t be happier about it! These glossy purple beauties are a food-lover’s dream, and especially for vegetarians since eggplant boasts a “meaty,” toothsome vibe that can make meatless meals especially hearty.

So how do we love our eggplant best? Let us count the ways — 20 of them, to be exact. Bring on the aubergines! Here are 20 of our favorite vegetarian eggplant recipes.

Recipe Title: Stuffed Miso Eggplant

Stuffed Miso Eggplant

Description: It doesn’t get much better than miso-seasoned walnuts served up in perfectly ripe eggplant boats. The topper (literally)? A colorful cherry tomato salad. Summer bliss.

    These recipes look quite wonderful! Eggplant (or aubergine as we call it over here) can be brilliant when done well. Definitely making the bolognese.
    I think my favourite “eggplant” recipe is caponata!

    How does one see the rest of the eggplant recipes? Are they compiled in a downloadable format?

      You should be able to click through the slide show and each slide has a link to the recipe. Maybe the slideshow isn’t working on your end?
