This is an eggplant that looked purple and was in the oven for about 20-30 min.
I cut it open and the eggplant was still firm and not mushy. I would put this in curries, or stir fries. When I made the dip I put it back in the oven for a bit more cooking.
Flavor of eggplant isn't strong. It really needs different spices, or garlic, or other ingredients to give it a punch of flavor.
I also love eggplant grilled and in sandwiches as well.
Try roasting some eggplant and see what you can do with it. It makes a great dip. I took a picture of it, but it didn't look very good even though it tasted great.
