Close Up – Real or Fairy Tale?

Contemplating over coffee…how to prepare these fairy tale eggplant to accompany tonight’s dinner?

Eggplant 2

These tiny eggplant are less bitter and have fewer seeds than their larger counterparts.  So, simple is best to showcase their flavor…perhaps the garlic will overpower.  I will slice them in half lengthwise and sauté in olive oil for just a few minutes, making sure to rotate in the nonstick pan.  After the eggplant become tender and nicely browned, while still on the heat, I will season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste, add fresh oregano and toss with a splash of balsamic vinegar glaze.
