In summer, eggplants of all shapes and sizes swell heavy on the vine. Let’s celebrate this mild, hearty produce. For this Japanese-inspired recipe, depending on what’s freshest near you, we’ll be sending you either a purple eggplant or a delicate white eggplant. To bring out the fruit’s subtle, savory flavor, we’re sautéing it, then serving it in a cooling soba noodle salad—along with multicolored cherry tomatoes—as a side for pan-seared cod. And for crunchy texture and an intensely aromatic finish, we’re garnishing the dish with peanuts and Thai basil.
