Good afternoon! Hope you’re having a great day!

I didn’t have a lot of time for lunch this afternoon so I was incredibly glad to have made a quick and easy recipe last night. It came in very handy!

Incredibly simple and delicious!

Eggplants and rutabagas aren’t exactly neutral flavored vegetables, but the combination works, especially with the tangy dressing to tie it together!

Theoretically now I should get back to the TONS to do before the gym this evening!  I have a feeling I’ll be baking and playing on facebook instead :/ Gah, thank goodness it’s only a three day week and then a LOOOOOOONG holiday weekend!!!

PS – Got a second? CSN giveaway over at Everyday Foodie! Who couldn’t use some extra holiday help?

  1. That looks soo good! Now I finally have a healthy eggplant recipe besides ratatouille.

  2. I’ve actually never eaten a rutabaga! What does it taste like? And is Drew’s goddess dressing like Annie’s?

      It’s mostly like a potato but tarter – almost a bitter taste so you definitely need something to help neutralize it. It’s great, though! I’ve actually never had Annies (I KNOW!!!), but it’s awesome – one dressing I always have in my fridge at all times 🙂

    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
