I’m notorious for finding recipes in magazines and adding them to my rotation of healthy eats.  I found this recipe for Eggplant Steaks and immediately added the ingredients to my shopping list.  My obsession with eggplant started with Eggplant Parmigiana at Italian restaurants but has since evolved into healthier versions of this purple vegetable.  I made this dish and was oh so pleased with how it turned out.
