How to cook
Slice off the stem tip and discard. The eggplant in the video is Italian eggplant, which is generally the largest common varietal. You will need to make some slight adjustments to the procedure here if you're using a smaller or narrower type of eggplant.
The thing about eggplant is that it has a unique skin. It can be almost like plastic. Once it's cooked, it softens up a little, but I sometimes like to remove a few strips of skin to make it less apparent. Remove 4 strips, evenly spaced down the length of the eggplant.
Slice the eggplant lengthwise into flaps of equal width, the desired width of your dice.
Keep the flaps stacked and rotate them to slice in the opposite direction to yield strips.
Cut to desired size.
