1. Eggplant Tarte Tatin with Black Pepper Caramel

This recipe from Gourmet takes the classic French upside-down tart and turns it on its head by using eggplant rather than traditional apples. Eggplant is slightly bitter, but when combined with sugar and then caramelized, its the texture and subtle sweetness that shine.

And if you have a hard time getting your mind around the idea, think of it this way: Eggplant is classified botanically as a fruit. So really, this is just another fruit tart. Find the recipe here: Eggplant Tarte Tatin with Black Pepper Caramel
