We are talking about the recipe for pan-fried aubergines: today we will see in detail how to make this delicious side dish!
You are ready? So, fasten your aprons and let's see together how to cook aubergines in this simple and fast way, but also very tasty!
Now we have seen how to prepare simple aubergines, but if you want there are many other possibilities to bring this delicious recipe to the table.
This dish lends itself to many variations based on your taste (and seasonality) as well as the ingredients that your refrigerator offers. For example, you can prepare aubergines and zucchini in a pan by replacing one of the aubergines with a zucchini. Then put all the vegetables to purge, and continue with the recipe as indicated above.
The cooking times are more or less the same, so you shouldn't have any problems. You must, however, make small pieces all the same size, so they will cook evenly.
Another delicious variant involves the addition of tomatoes: add fresh tomatoes or the sauce in a pan and you will get an even more colorful side dish! If, on the other hand, you love Mediterranean flavors, a handful of capers, anchovies, and maybe even some breadcrumbs will suffice to best flavor your dish.
Do you want to overdo the goodness? Then try some diced aubergines in a pan: you can also fry them or simply cook them in olive oil, flavoring them with herbs and seasonings. If you pass the first in flour, then, you will reach a level of absolute lust!
Finally, for a really light dish, replace the olive oil with a couple of tablespoons of vinegar: with fewer calories, but still very tasty!
Finally, here is a greedy version of this dish! We will now prepare a sort of quick parmigiana made in a pan, delicious and quick to make, ideal to serve also as a single dish.
The ingredients are very simple: eggplant, tomato, mozzarella, grated cheese, basil, and various condiments! The procedure is even simpler...
