Eggplant Extravaganza: 9 Delectable Low FODMAP Recipes to Delight Your Taste Buds

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy for details.

We think eggplant is an unsung vegetable. It can be featured in main dishes, appetizer and sides. It can be roasted, grilled, braised and sautéed. It soaks up whatever seasonings you throw at it, making it quite versatile. We have 9 recipes for you, and even if you think you don’t like eggplant, we believe these recipes will change your mind.

Ratatouille (rat-tuh-TOO-ee) is based on the classic late-summer vegetable stew featuring eggplant, zucchini and red bell peppers. Our version uses scallion greens instead of onions and uses the oven to roast the vegetables with olive oil, which concentrates the vegetable’s flavors. Then the veggies are combined with fresh tomatoes on top of the stove and cooked until soft, silky and rich. Flavored with thyme and rosemary, this vegan dish is incredibly versatile. Get the recipe for Ratatouille.
