How to cook
Prick the eggplant all over with the tines of a fork.
Depending on the strength of your microwave, cook for 7 to 10 minutes or until the eggplant has puffed up a bit and steam is escaping the pricked holes. The eggplant will be soft and wrinkle a bit as it cools.
Let the eggplant cool for a few minutes or until cool enough to handle. Peel off the skin and remove the stem. It should come off easily. Add the eggplant flesh to your dish and enjoy!
