Roasted Baby Eggplants
I have deep respect for eggplants. Can you think of any other edible item in such a deep shade of purple? If there's anything better than eggplant, it's baby eggplant. But I'm a fan of miniature versions of pretty much everything. Baby eggplants make a perfect starter - all you have to do is roast them, maybe adding a bit of spicy green paste.
