Do I have to throw away bitter eggplant after I have baked it? Can something be done or do I have to throw it away?
I was roasting cubed eggplant and cherry tomatoes in the oven. Took one out to taste it and it was very BITTER! I did not have time to salt them first before cooking. I removed them from the roasting tray and put the eggplant into a hot frying pan with olive oil and constantly stirring it to encourage all the moisture to leach out. Then I added 1/4 teaspoon of granulated sugar and 2 Tablespoons of milk and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. It removed and disguised all the bitterness. Hope this helps.
As already baked, I don't think so, it is possible to remove the bitterness. But you can make a curry (check some Indian recopies) with baked eggplant. It may help.
To avoid this problem in future: Cut the eggplant in a salty water. Then drain it and bake it. Salt water will reduce its bitterness.
