What should I do with this Rosemary and Eggplant?
I just joined an organic coop where I get a basket of vegetables and fruit every week. I am not much of a cook. I have been on a calorie restricted, medically supervised diet and am just now incorporating fruits and vegetables back into my diet.
I haven’t cooked much in the last 20 years. My husband didn’t really like my vegetable rich cooking and we ate out a lot. (Thus the need for the calorie restricted diet.) About 5 years ago we did this diet and got down to a
reasonable GREAT weight. We continued eating the food provided by the diet which is very nutritionally sound, but started incorporating more foods. A few pounds creeped back on so we went strict again, lost the weight and are now incorporating just fruits and vegetables. Other foods will come later, but right now, all I have to work with are the diet entrees, herbs and spices and vegetables and fruits.
I can figure out what to do with everything else in my basket, but I don’t know what to do with eggplant and rosemary. I can mix it with my entrees but I have never cooked eggplant before and I can’t use any oil. (Pam or “I can’t believe it’s not butter” spray but no oil) Here is a list of the entrees I eat if you think it will help to come up with creative recipes.
Sorry if this question contained to much information.
