I think one of the best things to come out of Italy is Burrata Cheese. If you haven't had Burrata yet (shame on you), the best way to describe it is as a hybrid of Mozzarella and Ricotta Cheese. It's got this great tang with this creamy texture and it's just one of those things you could put on a slice of Italian Bread and go to town on.
So for last night's Meatless Monday meal, I decided to make something that I never EVER cook: Eggplant.
I have to be honest, I am not a huge Eggplant fan, but the eggplants in the store looked amazing and gigantic and I had to give them a try. Instead of doing what I usually do with ingredients that I'm not fond of, which is Frying them up, I went with a Grilled Eggplant. I paired is with some delicious fresh Burrata and Fresh Basil. Aand as an added Italian kick, I drizzled some delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil on top and one of my favroite things, Maldon Salt (a flakey sea salt).
I must admit, tihs was a great option for a Vegetarian Dinner!
