I love to cook. I love my CSA (community supported agriculture).
As The Purple Cook I’ll share with you how our family uses the food we got from our CSA and other local sources. The blog will share recipes, storage tips, and stories of what happens to that food from pick up to kitchen clean up.
A CSA can be fun, adventurous, and surprising.

Grilled Chicken and Eggplant Stacks
These were fun to make.These stacks are a little bit elegant and would be fun when you have
guests to dinner.
Sunday Menu – Grilled Chicken and Eggplant Stack with Fire
Roasted Tomato Sauce, Salad Farm Share Food – Eggplant, Garlic, Onion, Basil, Salad Mix,
Tomato, Carmen Pepper
NOTES:I doubled the
amount of crushed red pepper and it had a nice bite but wasn’t overly
spicy.So if you like a kick I recommend
you use the crushed red pepper generously.I didn’t have any fresh basil, but lots of frozen cubes from the
summer.I just melted a cube or two into
the sauce.I did my grilling on my
electric indoor grill.While the chicken
and eggplant were grilling I was able to make the sauce.We needed a nice bit of crusty bread to go
with dinner last night – hope you have some on hand when you make this.
