Sophia DeSantis – Veggies Don’t Bite
Produce Pick: Eggplant
If there's one thing that Sophia has taught us it's that just because a dish is gluten-free, vegan and free of refined sugars doesn't mean it can't pack in flavor and taste delicious. Recently she's picked up eggplant at her local farmers market–an ingredient that she actually never liked before experimenting with it this season. Sophia tells us, "We have been finding some amazing local organic eggplant and stocking up. The most recent way I have used this great veggie is in my newest kid dish: Oven Baked Eggplant Fries. The great thing about eggplant is that when they are baked in the oven like a typical potato fry, they almost look the same, especially if you take off the skins. My boys went nuts when I tried these out and literally ate a whole eggplant worth each!"
