Feastie Friday: 21 International Recipes to Use Up Eggplant

Eggplant is EVERYWHERE. It's literally exploding out from everyone's gardens, piling up on tables at farmers markets, and stacked in your local grocery store. It's in season, it's inexpensive, and it's ridiculously delicious. But maybe you're in an eggplant rut - one can only eat so much eggplant parmesan (although one can eat quite a bit of it). We've rounded up 21 eggplant recipes from around the globe (pun intended), everything from pizza and curry to moussaka and stir fry, to keep things interesting. Enjoy the rest of your summer and the abundant summer produce and get adventurous with one (or more) of these recipes!
