Eggplant Noodles- A delicious easy all veggie dish!

By 14/07/2017

Zucchini noodles have been popular for quite some time so I thought why not try doing the same with eggplant?

Eggplants are abundantly in season in this part of the world at the moment and they are such a gorgeous versatile vegetable.

I do not own a spiralizer and I am not going to buy one. I am a traditional when it comes to buy kitchen gadgets, in fact I can say I am quite old fashioned and I don't like to buy gadgets unless I am going to use them on a regular basis.. besides the storage space in my kitchen is limited.

In any case, to make eggplant noodles you don't need a spiralizer but just a good knife. This dish will be perfect as a healthy light lunch with some parmesan shavings on top or with a few cubes of feta cheese. I have added fresh thyme and oregano, with cherry tomatoes and olives.

I cannot believe how vegetables can be magically transformed sometimes. I just love creating in the kitchen and IΒ  want to experiment more with light and fancy dishes.

Have a fab weekend everyone πŸ™‚

Slice the eggplant in half and then with a sharp knife cut it at julienne. The strips should resemble thick spaghetti.

In a pan heat up 5 tbsp of olive oil and then stir fry the eggplant strips with the chopped herbs until slightly golden. Add a pinch of salt and a grind of pepper. They should take 3 to 4 minutes.

Cut the olives and the cherry tomatoes in half. In a pan stir fry the tomatoes and the olives for a couple of minutes with 1 tbsp of olive olive oil.

Add the olives and the tomatoes to the eggplant strips and mix well. Put them on a serving dish and drizzle with a little more olive oil.

    Hi Stranger!!! This looks so wonderful….How I love ALL your recipes…..I bought an ice cream maker, but the whole family agrees that your Vienetta recipe is better than the ice cream! Anyway….I will be trying this one immediately.

      Ciao carissima! Sooner or later we have to meet up. I want an ice cream maker too! I have an old one in Italy (bought in my childhood and still working!) but I want to buy a new one.
      Hope you are having a nice hot summer and lots of lovely gelatos. Ciao!
