    Eggplant I do Japanese style. Slice and fry. Then a sauce of dashi, soy sauce , mirin and corn starch.

  • jocelynanne  on  7/23/2013 at 5:18 PM

    I love to flavor fall soups with mild, beautiful leeks.

  • KellyWarner  on  7/23/2013 at 5:21 PM

    What a lovely book to win! I am studying at Le Cordon Bleu & have big dreams of one day opening a market stall in France. Who knows, dreams can come true ;-). Fingers crossed for this lovely book. Oh & my favourite way to use leeks is to use as part of a French onion soup ... Onions & leeks! Delish!

  • PatriciaAnn  on  7/23/2013 at 5:38 PM

    I like to buy leeks from Trader Joe's as they are trimmed and almost dirt free. Then, I cut up and sauté a whole batch and have them at the ready to add to tarts, quiche and veggies.

  • Jencin  on  7/23/2013 at 5:48 PM

    The only thinks better would be shopping for ingredients in Paris.

  • Jaswany  on  7/23/2013 at 5:56 PM

    I like to use leeks un soup or eqq quiche.

  • Aggie92  on  7/23/2013 at 5:57 PM

    Leek and potato soup. So simple and so delicious!

  • StaciLee  on  7/23/2013 at 6:01 PM

    I love using eggplant in my tomato sauce. This meaty veggie is a great meat replacement!

  • fprincess  on  7/23/2013 at 6:13 PM

    Pickled fennel. There is a great recipe in Babbo for a quick pickle. The brine has water, white wine vinegar, sugar, salt, black peppercorns. You just bring the brine to a boil and pour it on the sliced fennel. The pickled fennel is a great accompaniment to charcuterie. It's a nice change from cornichons!

  • souprcook  on  7/23/2013 at 6:22 PM

    We like French recipes, and fresh market produce! :-)

  • Linda S.  on  7/23/2013 at 7:10 PM

    Years ago, I bought a Talisman cookbook just for its many versions of Italian recipes for eggplant. I have reduced my eggplant recipe to its simplest: I bake the lengthwise slices in the oven, brushing them with olive oil and turning them once, then top with spaghetti sauce and mozzarella, layering the sauce and cheese twice. Excellent, low calorie, easy to do.

  • Jo Anne Kindler  on  7/23/2013 at 7:20 PM

    My husband and I often make a fennel and endive salad. We simply make a lemon/garlic vinaigrette and put it on a salad of chopped fennel and endive. I occasionally add other crisp vegetables, such as celery or green pepper.

  • sideshoes  on  7/23/2013 at 7:28 PM

    I love fennel shaved in a fresh salad.

  • alibens  on  7/23/2013 at 8:40 PM

    I love leeks in tarts...leek and chanterelle, leek, tomato and goat's cheese or leek and pancetta tart. Yum. I love fennel in soups and salads...fennel and orange salad. And chicken and eggplant stew, eggplant fresh from the grill with other grilled vegetables and my husband makes eggplant "sandwiches" with goat's cheese and pine nuts which are so good they need to come with an addiction warning.

  • mballmann  on  7/23/2013 at 9:04 PM

    I love making a simple miso-glazed Japanese eggplant dish, a vegan leek gratin, and a shaved fennel salad!

  • suezeegee  on  7/23/2013 at 9:32 PM

    I can't pick just one favorite way for using eggplant. I love three: eggplant caviar, eggplant parmesan and ratatouille.

  • Agatha  on  7/24/2013 at 12:09 AM

    I love eggplant (or Aubergine!) cut into strips, toasted on a griddle and mixed into fresh pasta with ricotta and seasoned tomatoes - yum!

  • GillB  on  7/24/2013 at 2:01 AM

    Lasagne using eggplant and leeks and crispy fennel salad

  • Soccermom  on  7/24/2013 at 4:23 AM

    Ratatouille with eggplant

  • chawkins  on  7/24/2013 at 4:54 AM

    Eggplant sandwiches stuffed with chicken or pork or seafood mousse in a Chinese black bean garlic sauce.

  • nadiam1000  on  7/24/2013 at 6:10 AM

    I love to roast slices of fennel with olive oil and salt and pepper until golden brown and caramelized.

  • Larry Sombke  on  7/24/2013 at 6:29 AM

    Eggplant, especially the smaller reddish ones with white stripes, are great cooked on the barbecue grill. Just drizzle them with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and grill over low heat until they are soft.

  • myrecipeaddiction  on  7/24/2013 at 6:38 AM

    I like to grill eggplant.

  • lovelily1001  on  7/24/2013 at 8:06 AM

    eggplant: currently, any way is great! the first recipe that got me eating eggplant was to broil slices with parmesan cheese on top. delish!

  • lisal  on  7/24/2013 at 8:31 AM

    My favorite use of eggplant is in a gratin with tomato sauce and cheese.

  • ballen  on  7/24/2013 at 8:40 AM

    I discovered fennel on a trip to Europe and have loved it ever since! Roasted (slivered) with white wine, grated cheese and dotted with butter until golden and served with salmon is my favorite way to enjoy it.

  • wester  on  7/24/2013 at 8:49 AM

    Oh, I love all three. Eggplant I like best in an eggplant kuku: a Persian omelet, with saffron. But simply fried (long enough, with enough oil and enough salt) it is wonderful too. I will have them like that tonight, as a matter of fact. Leeks I like best as leeks vinaigrette. Fennel is wonderful just shaved really thin, with a lemon vinaigrette. If I had to choose between these three vegetables I would probably choose eggplant - but please don't make me!

  • gregdconsulting  on  7/24/2013 at 9:04 AM

    Eggplant sliced, seasoned and grilled is great. Eggplant is also great baked in the oven.

  • Kdmccul  on  7/24/2013 at 10:12 AM

    One of my favorite dishes is fennel & asian pear, both sliced thinly. Then drizzle with olive oil (good stuff is best) and lemon juice. Season with salt. Yum.

  • forgetmenot  on  7/24/2013 at 10:55 AM

    I love shaved fennel with sliced citrus fruit, capers and a raspberry vinaigrette. Delicious!

  • JoanN  on  7/24/2013 at 11:11 AM

    My mother adored eggplant and when I would cook for her I was always trying to find new and appealing eggplant recipes. One of her very favorites was Crispy Eggplant Slices from Andrea Nguyen’s “Into the Vietnamese Kitchen.”

  • DKennedy  on  7/24/2013 at 11:37 AM

    That is a hard one because I love fennel and eggplant equally. For this response, I will choose eggplant. I love to roast an eggplant whole, allow it to cool slightly, then tear it open and season it with salt, pepper, a little olive oil, and garlic (either raw or roasted) and that's it!

  • jenniesb  on  7/24/2013 at 12:59 PM

    I love "melted" leeks on everything from fish to flatbread. I cook chopped leeks down in butter very slowly (no caramelization needed) until they are meltingly soft, and then keep them in the fridge and use them as toppings and mix-ins. Yum.

  • emiliang  on  7/24/2013 at 2:11 PM

    Roasted eggplant spread is a staple on our table in the summer! Cut 2-3 eggplants in half, broil them skin side up until charred, let them sit in a strainer while they cool, and then chop the meat very finely (discard the skin). Mix in a bit of olive oil, grated onion, and salt. Optionally, add mayo to taste. Smoky, creamy, and savory - a delicious preparation!

  • krobbins426  on  7/24/2013 at 2:18 PM

    I made a fennel and onion jam. When spread on toast with goat cheese, it is divine.

  • AndieG52  on  7/24/2013 at 2:46 PM

    Fennel - both raw in salads and in a gratin with onion and Parmesan cheese.

  • maggiewt  on  7/24/2013 at 5:10 PM

    I like to roast leeks and use them as a milder alternative to onions, in soups and roast vegetable dishes.

  • maisie_grn  on  7/24/2013 at 5:12 PM

    I love to make leek, mushroom and Swiss scrambled eggs in the morning with my coffee and toast! I am traveling in France now on a graduation backpacking adventure and obviously loving the food! I would love a copy of this book to make some French vegetarian dishes when I get back home!

  • lvollm  on  7/24/2013 at 6:08 PM

    leek tart - buttery vegetables in buttery crust is perfect for chilly evenings!

  • elizam  on  7/24/2013 at 6:09 PM

    Leek and cheese toasties. Simple, indulgent and delicious - in fact, they will be on my dinner plate tonight!

  • bloodking  on  7/24/2013 at 6:10 PM

    I love leek and potato soup with some truffle oil drizzle.

  • cupcakemuffin  on  7/24/2013 at 6:15 PM

    I love to shave fennel really thinly on a mandoline, toss with arugula and shaved Parm, and dress simply with olive oil and lemon juice. A friend of mine introduced me to this recipe, which she got from one of her favorite restaurants (not sure which one). It is SO delicious!

  • bcknoll  on  7/24/2013 at 6:33 PM

    My husband makes a wonderful potato and leek soup. Potatoes, leeks, vegetable broth, salt and some freshly ground pepper. Great anytime, but especially on those cool fall weekends.

  • tr2jackson  on  7/24/2013 at 6:36 PM

    Eggplant Parmesan

  • mtrudinger  on  7/24/2013 at 6:36 PM

    I roast eggplant and add it to my favourite "Bolognese"-style sauce, it adds depth to the sauce and also helps me feed more vegetables to my children!

  • Roofood  on  7/24/2013 at 6:37 PM

    My new love is a mexican winter salad with thinly sliced fennel, orange, radish, pomegranate seeds, lime and chilli topped with crunchy tostado chips and feta...absolutely fresh and delicious!

  • Kate  on  7/24/2013 at 6:40 PM

    Leeks for sure! Added to a delish cheese tart.

  • Saskia  on  7/24/2013 at 6:43 PM

    leek and chicken pie, yummy

  • mreils  on  7/24/2013 at 6:48 PM

    I probably favor eggplant or fennel over leeks as the star of the show - either roasted or braised. Eggplant can be great in a French preparation but also Middle Eastern, even Asian.

  • radishseed  on  7/24/2013 at 6:51 PM

    I love to make eggplant with Indian or Thai flavors, in curries or stir-fries. Or roasted and blended into baba ghanouj.

  • cmeredith  on  7/24/2013 at 6:55 PM

    I love fennel all ways, but my favorite recipe is raw, shaved in a salad with olives, figs, and almonds.

  • angelanorr  on  7/24/2013 at 7:01 PM

    Being vegetarian and also loving Italian food, eggplant meatballs is one of my fav uses of eggplant.

  • MaxLisaSophie  on  7/24/2013 at 7:07 PM

    In the summer, few things are more refreshing than a shaved fennel slaw. In the fall, we love to sauté leeks and fennel together until beautifully caramelized. We serve this in tarts, turnovers, tossed with pasta, or on its own as a side dish.

  • madamepince  on  7/24/2013 at 7:13 PM

    Wild leeks -- ramps -- in quiche. Yum!

  • travelinggypsies  on  7/24/2013 at 7:29 PM

    I am crazy for grilled vegetables. Leeks grilled with olive oil and some fennel pollen seasoning.

  • Nancith  on  7/24/2013 at 7:31 PM

    This book is on my wishlist! I love eggplants roasted slowly w/ olive oil & herbs until meltingly soft.

  • Sofie168  on  7/24/2013 at 7:45 PM

    I like leeks in stews.

  • Slmwnm  on  7/24/2013 at 7:54 PM

    Leeks the classic way - with potatoes pureed into a smooth soup, which I prefer served heated.

  • patsylu  on  7/24/2013 at 7:56 PM

    There's a leek tart I've made a few times that I love.

  • susan g  on  7/24/2013 at 8:02 PM

    All 3 would be wonderful in any ratatouille, and even better in caponata.

  • mfeldman51  on  7/24/2013 at 8:47 PM

    Leeks braised in the oven. Fennel roasted with pork. Spicy eggplant with ground pork.

  • jaelsne  on  7/24/2013 at 8:48 PM

    Third time is the charm! Sorry for the previous entries, I wasn't signed in! My husband and I often make a fennel and endive salad. We simply make a lemon/garlic vinaigrette and put it on a salad of chopped fennel and endive. I occasionally add other crisp vegetables, such as celery or green pepper.

  • lync  on  7/24/2013 at 9:16 PM

    I love eggplant and leeks. But here we'll stick to leeks. I use them every soup particularly and in pasta. One of my more interesting pasta sauces is a combo of leeks, corn, bacon or pancetta,, and red pepper flakes (or a hot Italian pepper). A pasta with tomato added is a plus. The leeks mellow out the stronger ingredients.

  • Corinne Cline  on  7/24/2013 at 9:43 PM

    I love to smother eggplant in olive oil, season with sea salt and black pepper, and toss it on the grill. It's such simple food - perfect for summer.

  • Amy  on  7/24/2013 at 9:44 PM

    I love all 3 veggies. My favorite ways to use them are: eggplant - roasted fennel - raw as a dipper leeks - sauteed Yum!

  • cpasek  on  7/24/2013 at 10:37 PM

    I like to add fennel to salads.

  • elysek  on  7/24/2013 at 11:01 PM

    Leeks are wonderful in many soups. I especially love potato leek soup in winter.

  • mirandanel  on  7/24/2013 at 11:14 PM

    I love stir-fried eggplant

  • Suelovesfood  on  7/24/2013 at 11:27 PM

    My new favorite way to eat eggplant is roasted in the skin, with a Greek yogurt and buttermilk sauce, sprinkled with pomegranate seeds from Plenty by Ottolenghi.

  • AquamarineSteph  on  7/25/2013 at 12:58 AM

    I love making leek and potato soup. it's a huge favorite at my house!

  • JanScholl  on  7/25/2013 at 1:41 AM

    I love the smaller Japanese eggplants sliced longwise and thin, salted and drained and then fried in garlic olive oil to make pretty chips.

  • bellaluna221  on  7/25/2013 at 3:02 AM

    Fennel is delicious raw, finely shaven with celery, olives, and Parmigiano-Reggiano; drizzled with olive oil, it makes a perfect salad.

  • vhbcooks  on  7/25/2013 at 5:33 AM

    I make a leek gratin with olive oil, a tad of dry white wine, butter and Parmesan with breadcrumbs.

  • sydneya  on  7/25/2013 at 5:44 AM

    Roasted fennel is delicious by itself or along side a roasted chicken.

  • Kathyann  on  7/25/2013 at 6:28 AM

    I recently made Pasta alla Norma w/ eggplant, which was wonderful!

  • wanderlustdream  on  7/25/2013 at 7:38 AM

    I like to thickly slice, bread, and fry it. It becomes so gooey in the middle and it's good to eat hot or cold! Great to use in sandwiches too. I've also cut up the eggplant into small pieces and used it in a stir-fry. Very delicious!

  • lrbrandi  on  7/25/2013 at 7:45 AM

    Simply grilled eggplant with a tangy dressing is devine.

  • Jaime  on  7/25/2013 at 8:12 AM

    I love fennel, sliced thin and added to a green salad with a lemony vinaigrette. Fresh dill and/or lemon soaked onions make it even better.

  • aistern  on  7/25/2013 at 8:13 AM

    My favorite way to cook eggplant is actually a traditional chinese way using ginger, rice wine vinegar, and chili paste - it's a fast stir fry and very flavorful!

  • jaimeL  on  7/25/2013 at 8:15 AM

    My comment again but signed in this time.... I love fennel, sliced thin and added to a green salad with a lemony vinaigrette. Fresh dill and/or lemon soaked onions make it even better.

  • Choclette  on  7/25/2013 at 9:01 AM

    Leeks are one of my favourite vegetables an I use them all the time. But a simple tart made of leeks in a light cheese sauce is absolutely scrumptious.

  • Directjudy  on  7/25/2013 at 9:59 AM

    I make a salad of thinly sliced fennel, then dress it simply with lemon juice, olive oil, and plenty of salt, then finally shower it with parmesan. DELICIOUS! Orphee

  • minervasowl  on  7/25/2013 at 10:03 AM

    I make a pureed fennel, spinach, and leek soup (I call it the green soup) which I love. It's great either hot or cold.

  • pipinita21  on  7/25/2013 at 10:03 AM

    Ratatouille... it makes you think of mom and home. The smell of garlic and olive oil is just... delicious!

  • CCF4  on  7/25/2013 at 11:02 AM

    I like to grill eggplant slices, then cut up with other veggies in my Panzanella Salad (sorry, not completely traditional.....

  • DFed  on  7/25/2013 at 11:55 AM

    Leeks are so versatile, there's no end to the ways to use them! Soups, tarts, omelets, you name it!

  • Lizwizz  on  7/25/2013 at 12:15 PM

    I use leeks for leek and potato soup, flavored with fresh dill and thyme from my garden. I roast eggplant whole and use it to make a mousse with lemon, garlic and olive oil. I roast sliced fennel and add it, with other roasted vegetables, to cooked quinoa, then add a balsamic vinaigrette containing honey, dijon mustard and garlic.

  • MeganP  on  7/25/2013 at 12:49 PM

    Sauteed and melted leeks in a million different things, from mashed potatoes to bread pudding.

  • lawnchair7  on  7/25/2013 at 12:58 PM

    I like making Bruschetta with fennel and white beans. delicious!

  • caitmcg  on  7/25/2013 at 2:22 PM

    I love a salad of thinly shaved fennel and red onions, with whatever fresh green herbs I have on hand and lemon and olive oil dressing. A bit of preserved lemon is a wonderful addition.

  • Spa  on  7/25/2013 at 2:47 PM

    Roasted eggplant, sautéed with caramelized onions and long simmered tomatoes and spices of course !

  • Lulabelldesigns  on  7/25/2013 at 3:35 PM

    My favorite way to use leeks is to slice them thinly and put them in a papillote with fresh scallops, butter, lemon,white wine, zucchini, tomatoe and basil and seasonings. Bake or grill!

  • Aggreenhouse  on  7/25/2013 at 4:22 PM

    I have a fennel lemon and burrata salad that I love

  • Senkimekia  on  7/25/2013 at 5:14 PM

    Eggplant is so versatile. We use it in italian, asian, indian cuisine and more. My problem is I always forget how awesome eggplant is soon after we cook with it! I swear, every time it makes its appearance we always say "Boy, we need to use that more often"...

  • Davidflores912  on  7/25/2013 at 7:43 PM

    Leeks - I love to use leeks in the summer to top a zucchini carpaccio. I slice zucchini razor thin on a mandolin, then shingle the slices on a plate. I top that with rings of leeks that have also been sliced razor thin on the mandolin. Add some herbs like basil or mint, shaved parmesan, a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice and salt and fresh cracked pepper. I grill rustic italian bread and use that as the base of the carpaccio. This is a huge crowd favorite.

  • RuthGo  on  7/25/2013 at 9:24 PM

    I have to admit that I don't use those 3 as often as I would like but there's a restaurant I go to that does a pasta dish with salmon and fennel that I would love to replicate.

  • decklededges  on  7/26/2013 at 9:07 AM

    I have an amazing leek mac and cheese that we love to make whenever we feel decadent.

  • msnancyy  on  7/26/2013 at 10:08 AM

    Eggplant for sure: slice the long way, brush with oil then grill. Mix up some crumbled feta, a little lemon juice, minced hot pepper and mint. Pile onto the wide end of a slice of the eggplant and roll up. Sprinkle more mint over the top.

  • chilesincarne  on  7/26/2013 at 5:34 PM

    Being a vegetarian and living with a person who loves meat and doesn't like much vegetables, I have to be very strategic in how I use eggplants (which I love) - if sharing food, then it becomes babaganoush, if eating with other vegetarians, then eggplant joins other friends in a ratatouille:)

  • tenpot  on  7/26/2013 at 7:16 PM

    My favorite recipe using eggplant is from the Frugal Gourmet. It's the Casserole of Lamb, Italian Fennel Sausage, and Eggplant. Definitely not vegetarian but easy & yummy.

  • JenniferGk6  on  7/26/2013 at 7:28 PM

    I like to roast leeks and fennel.

  • ssimm411  on  7/27/2013 at 2:58 AM

    I adore eggplant! I love a roasted ratatouille and an eggplant dip recipe - both of which I found in the Cowgirl Chef cookbook. It's one of the cookbooks we used in Cook My Book!

  • AZArdie  on  7/27/2013 at 8:51 AM

    I love to make a creamy soup out of leeks and potatoes.

  • frogger097  on  7/27/2013 at 8:55 AM

    I love making a lasagna that is a veggie lasagna where I use thinly sliced eggplant as the "noodles" in between the layers of cheeses and other veggies. It is so delicious!

  • kayanelson  on  7/27/2013 at 12:53 PM

    Leek and roasted potato soup is a favorite.

  • Vanessa  on  7/27/2013 at 10:03 PM

    Eggplant in the ratatouille from Moosewood Cooks on Sundaya

  • nikkichic  on  7/28/2013 at 6:57 AM

    like to caarmelize leeks in a tiny bit of butter and serve them as a simple side dish with chicken or pork.

  • louie734  on  7/28/2013 at 7:06 AM

    We love eggplant - on pizza, or breaded, then fried or baked, and stuffed into an eggplant parm sandwich. Yum.

  • rtaptos  on  7/28/2013 at 11:41 AM

    I roast eggplant, squash, red peppers, and tomatoes. I then add in some homemade hummus. I place the mixture in a square of puff pastry and bake. Delicious.

  • JHarker  on  7/28/2013 at 5:02 PM

    I love to turn leeks into a blue cheese and leek tart or good old leek and potato soup.

  • pgarcia  on  7/28/2013 at 5:07 PM

    I have made Gratin of Ground Beef and Eggplant from Bake Until Bubbly (Clifford A. Wright) many times and never grow tired of it!

  • FJT  on  7/28/2013 at 6:37 PM

    Fennel is so versatile: I like it raw in salads but it also works beautifully in stews and ravines ... however my favourite fennel recipe is Ottolenghi's caramelised fennel!

  • rlmiller  on  7/31/2013 at 9:35 AM

    I love an eggplant roulade - grilled slices of eggplant rolled around a ricotta based stuffing and baked in a spicy tomato sauce.

  • richterrenee1  on  7/31/2013 at 1:18 PM

    I like to cook leeks and fennel together and eat on a pizza I cook on the grill.

  • janecarrick  on  8/2/2013 at 2:16 AM

    I like leeks with mushrooms in pasta - also leek mash is brilliant to top shepherd's or fish pie.

  • Marti  on  8/2/2013 at 4:45 PM

    I like eggplant with everything but the current favorite is in baba ghanoush. Prior to that it was Japanese style: grilled and topped with miso. But even just roasted and eaten plain is wonderful.

  • imaluckyducky  on  8/4/2013 at 7:15 PM

    Eggplant that's roasted in the oven for a bit until concave, peeled, and then mashed together with some roasted garlic and harissa is AWESOME. I use it as a sammich spread.

  • boardingace  on  8/5/2013 at 4:46 PM

    I like to use leeks in egg dishes or soups. Mmmm.

  • cespitler  on  8/6/2013 at 9:46 PM

    I'm a huge fan of the fennel in the Buttermilk Farro Salad recipe on the 101 Cookbooks site. Everything in the salad is so fresh.

  • elogibs  on  8/6/2013 at 11:41 PM

    Recently I've been doing a lot of roasted eggplant, varying the herbs and spices to get different flavors. Ratatouille is always a favorite, though, and a time-honored way to prepare is Chinese-style, stir-fried with plenty of garlic and pepper for a kick.

    Definitely eggplant. My family still laughs about my first attempt at making Eggplant parmesan after I graduated from college and was in my first apartment. A co-worker told me you dip the eggplant in some eggs and bread crumbs, so I mixed the two together and had a "pancake" on either side!

    Quite simply- leek & potato soup.

    I love to just roast fennel with a little EVOO and black pepper.
