The Cookstr Weekly: Ten Recipes for Tomatoes and Eggplant
It’s a common saying among gardeners and cooks that “things that grow together, go together.” Seasonality matters, because it provides a useful guide for combining ingredients. As both tomatoes and eggplant come into season, I’m reminded of how well their juicy flavors and complementary textures work in tandem.
Tomatoes have high levels of natural umami, the savory taste distinct from saltiness that gives foods like ramen and aged cheeses their lip-smacking quality. That makes them a perfect foil for the toothsome meatiness of eggplant. Try them together and separately in breakfasts, appetizers, and mains.
