There’s a wealth of research supporting how good mushrooms are for your health, possibly reducing the risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes while improving your skin, hair, gut health. That’s a partial list. So, it makes sense that if it only takes eating about a quarter cup of mushrooms per day to reap these benefits, we should do that. Slipping mushrooms into omelets and turkey burgers is easy, but I wanted to create a dish that features the shroom along with another personal favorite, eggplant. Eggplant isn’t a nutritional miracle, like mushrooms, but it certainly is good for you.
putting Charred Eggplant with Crimini together
If you’re concerned about charring and carcinogens, don’t be. Carcinogenic compounds happen with charred or burnt meats and potatoes but not other vegetables. Which is a good thing because I love charred vegetables; the flavor is smoky and nutty. But, what sets this recipe apart is the sliced jalapeño and ginger. The dish has depth and background heat.
Charred Eggplant and Crimini with Basil over Udon go together as quickly as a stir-fry; it’s a great weeknight dinner option.
