Make Delicious Eggplant Noodles Without Any Special Tools

By now you may have grown tired of hearing about zucchini noodles (aka "zoodles") but I'm here to break up your veggie noodle boredom with eggplant noodles. You don't even need a spiralizer.

The beauty of this veggie "noodle" is two-fold: they cook super fast and — since they are made of spongy eggplant — they absorb flavorful sauces like whoa. To make them, peel an eggplant and julienne it into thin noodles, using a sharp knife (or a mandoline if you have one, but true to the headline, you don't need one to do this.) Saute them in hot oil (The Kitchn recommends 1 tablespoon olive oil + 1 teaspoon sesame) until soft and slightly browned, about 3-5 minutes. Top with whatever sauce, meat, or veggies you see fit, or use The Kitchn's spicy recipe linked below.
