Eggplant and Mushrooms SpaghettiThis wholesome spaghetti preparation is loaded with veggies and is an ideal breakfast. Though most of the time we do not add veggies to spaghetti, this time we decided to give it a go. If fresh and ripe tomatoes are available, the results would be great. Addition of local dried herbs can be experimented with if you prefer to do so. If you don't like eggplants, substitute it with zucchini. Similarly, feel free to pick the local mushroom variety of your preference. If you prefer, you can add the veggies in mashed form too. While parboiling sliced eggplants, make sure you keep them a bit rawer. Don't hesitate in making the spicier version of the same by adding hot chili flakes. Let's quickly make this delicious recipe.
