quick pickle eggplant

I liked this spicy pickle, but my husband did not. Add less lemon if you prefer to taste the eggplant coming through the lemon.

Quick Pickle Eggplant
Serves 2-4
2-4 tablespoons olive oil
4-5 small eggplants, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
10 basil leaves, minced
1/2 lemon, juiced

1. Place eggplant in a colander and salt liberally. Leave to drain the liquid out of eggplant for an hour. Rinse with water.

2. Heat oil in a pan and add garlic. Once fragrant add eggplant and basil. Cook until wilted and browning. Turn off heat and add lemon juice.

  1. I need to pickle crazier veggies like this. Never seen pickled eggplant before but it sounds good to me!
