These were the cutest eggplants I have ever seen, I just had to buy them! I found them at the new Wholefoods Market near our neighborhood. Okay, so they are cute and you ask yourself, "but, were they good?" They were delicious! We sauteed them with a little oil, chili peppers from our garden, lemon zest from our neighbors Meyer lemon tree, and basil from our garden. Served with brown rice - not local rice, don't think I can get local rice - but it was organic - all of it was!
