Eggplants compliment other foods nicely as a side dish and are hearty enough to steal the show in a main course – as this recipe sure will!

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggplants
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 medium onions, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
