An Eggplant Dish with a Newbie Friendly Shortcut
We often feel a bit stumped with eggplant; aside from our usual go-to dish or two, we just aren't sure how else to cook it. This 101-level twist on a popular flatbread dish found in India and Pakistan gives us a new reason to love the purple nightshade. You throw together a simple stew with eggplant, tomato and crunchy mustard seeds then serve the savory mixture with wedges of the bread. The brilliant trick here: Use whole wheat tortillas instead of making your own flatbread dough.
