Grecian Style Eggplant Uncanned

I was saving this meal for the apocalypse but then my interest got the best of me.

Sometimes I honestly have no time to cook a meal or even warm up leftovers for lunch. (I really hate rushing but I try to avoid skipping meals!)

So on my grocery hunting, I look for foods that are as healthy as possible, last a long time on the shelf, and are quick to enjoy. Canned olives, pickles, and crackers make great contenders.

While at my local Trader Joes, I saw Grecian Style Eggplant in a can and decided to give it a try.

Trader Joes’ Grecian Style Eggplant

Grecian Style EggplantI’ll admit that at first glance, the canned eggplant isn’t the most beautiful thing you’ve seen. Foodies would definitely shed a tear and chefs would give it the cold shoulder, and for good reason…

It’s dark, oily mixture leaves a few question marks bouncing around but if you allow yourself to inquire further, you will start to smell the heavenly mixture of eggplant, tomatoes and onions straight from Bulgaria.

The canned adventure is worth it if you enjoy smooth, grecian style eggplant. It’s also really delicious as a side to roasted lamb and rice, or really any meal with feta. You can also try broiling it with a little cheese.

Alone, it is a vegan option and can be refrigerated for up to 3 days once opened.

What I Buy It Again?

Yes. Anything that can be canned, ready to serve at a moment’s notice and might keep me from going hungry in the midst of a zombie apocalypse is a winner in my book. It’s also affordable and can be incorporated into a family meal with very little effort.

If you do not have a Trader Joe’s near you, I feel for you. However, it is also available on Amazon.
