Cooking with Comedians E2 – Eggplant and Peaches with Hannah Boone

Eggplant 🍆 and Peaches 🍑 have gone together since the dawn of emojis 😊 , mostly thanks to the body parts 🙈 they resemble. We’ve all sent the flirty 💋 text or two using these emojis. The only problem is they have never gone together in a dish 🍽…until now. The very funny 🤣 comedian Hannah Boone teamed up with our Cooking 🥄 with Comedians 🎤 by Newdie Mag host JR Bruno to make fried eggplant 🍆 topped with a peach 🍑 salsa 💃.

Fried eggplant 🍆 and peach salsa 🍑💃 recipe:

Fried eggplant:

1 eggplant, sliced, 1/2 rounds, leaving skin on

2 eggs 🥚

2 cups Italian breadcrumbs 🍞

1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese 🧀

1⁄4 cup dried parsley

1 tablespoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper, to taste 👅

2 cups vegetable oil

1) Spread eggplant slices on paper towels and sprinkle generously with salt. Let sit for one hour so that eggplant “sweats out” any bitterness 🚬. Pat 👐 dry. Prepare salsa 💃 while eggplant sweats out.

2) In a small bowl, beat 🥊 the eggs. In a separate bowl, mix breadcrumbs 🍞, parmesan 🧀, parsley, and garlic. Dredge each slice of eggplant in egg mixture coating 🧥 it thoroughly, then in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to help them stick. Let coated 🧥 eggplant sit for 10 minutes.

3) Heat oil in skillet 🍳 to 375 degrees. Fry the eggplant slices for 1 minute on each side, or until golden brown. Transfer to paper towel-lined baking sheet. Top with peach salsa and serve.

Peach salsa:

3 large peaches, seeded, peeled and diced

2 small tomatoes 🍅, diced

1 medium jalapeno 🌶, seeded and diced

1 cup diced red onion

1/2 cup loosely packed chopped fresh cilantro

Juice from 1 lime

Salt and pepper, to taste 👅

1) In a large bowl 🍜, combine all ingredients and stir until mixed well. Chill ❄ while completing fried eggplant 🍆.
