Eggplant is consider by most to be a uni-tasker, or some kind of mutant alien vegetable.  It’s actually a very versatile food that is present in several Ethnic Cooking Styles.  For Example; in Italian food it’s used in Eggplant Parmesan, or Eggplant Lasagna,  while in Asia it’s used int Stir Fries, or Breaded and Fried.  Today I’m doing it American, and we’re making some Eggplant Fries!
