(This article and yummy sounding stuffed eggplant recipe comes from Tove Cecilie Fasting, who in addition to running a successful bed and breakfast in sunny Greece, publishes her own website featuring
fabulous Greek inspired recipes.)
When my vegetable garden is overflowing with summer vegetables, whether it's zucchini, peppers or eggplants, I turn to the other Mediterranean countries to find inspiration for something
new to cook with the same old ingredients.
I love how salted anchovies are used as seasoning in dishes from southern France, like in this grilled and stuffed eggplant recipe from Provence, or in French: Aubergines Farcies à la Provençal.
In the heat of the summer, when temperatures can soar to 40°C (105°F), your body simply screams for something salty to replace all the minerals lost due to sweating. At the same time,
it is too hot to eat something heavy. Stuffed eggplant is the perfect hot summer day dish!
