Recipe Contest Runner-Up: Spicy Indian Eggplant

It was difficult choosing just one winner of our eggplant recipe contest. Chef Ernest Miller of theHollywood Farmer’s Kitchen and I were forced to take many, many bites of the finalists. But this was such a close second, we had to publish it, too!

This Spicy Indian Eggplant recipe comes from L.A. resident Jessa Forsythe-Crane, who adapted it from Randomgirl.com. She thought she didn’t like eggplant, but made this on a whim one day — Jessa loved it so much she added “OMG” to its name.

Check back here tomorrow to find the winning recipe. Until then, try this one out - it’d be perfect over basmati rice.
