Have You Heard of Fairy Tale Eggplant? (It’s as Magical as It Sounds)
Introducing our favorite vegetable of the year: tiny eggplant. Like, lipstick-tube tiny. Called Fairy Tale Eggplant, these little guys start their lives as flowers and grow into gorgeous purple-and-white-striped veggies starting in early summer. Add them to any dish to instantly make it look so fancy.
What do they taste like? Compared to their full-sized cousins, these heirloom jewels are sweet and melt-in-your-mouth creamy.
Where can I get my hands on a million? Head to your local farmers’ market or Trader Joe’s.
How do I cook them and live happily ever after? We love to keep them whole or halve them to show off their cute size. Grill, roast or sear them for a couple of minutes for best results.
