The vegetable garden we have in our home in Cervo every year slowly gives us smooth and shiny eggplants.
We love them all, one by one, ‘cause they are the result of the stubbornness of my mother who does not surrender to the laziness of a small and stony soil.
Today I share one of our favorite recipes with which we honor mom’s eggplants, the eggplant patties.
We like them also because they allow us to share the harvest even with children, who happily ignore the presence of the beloved vegetable inside their dish!
To give more freshness to my eggplant patties I love to serve them jointly with a season made with yogurt and parsley, something I happily adopted by the Arabic cuisine.
