In Venice, Italy there is a world-famous restaurant named Harry's Bar. They've published a cookbook. I can't afford a trip to Venice but I can afford the cookbook. What follows is an adaptation of Melazane Al Funghetto (Eggplant Cooked LIke Mushrooms). It is Medifast-friendly. My Sweet Lady Wife could not believe it was eggplant.
1 medium eggplant
1 plum tomato
Peel the eggplant and dice it into 1/2-inch pieces. Dice the tomato. Put a non-stick saute pan over medium heat. dump in the eggplant. Let the eggplant saute for 5 minutes then add the garlic, tomato, and parsley. Let cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
