I've been talking a lot about my weekly CSA delivery and rightfully so. Fresh, organic produce delivered to my doorstep direct from the farm is brilliant!
However, a couple of weeks in a row of eggplants and I was running out of ideas. Then it hit me to turn them into a taco or burrito filling. Eggplant has a mild flavor and will take on the essence of its surroundings. I played with both chorizo and bacon- look for the bacon burrito posting in the next week or so.
The ingredients are completely simple and without complication. Think of this as a rendition of a street taco. A simple, organic, healthy, Fat and Happy street taco.

2 tomatoes, diced small
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup chopped parsley (or cilantro)
Juice of 1 juicy lime (use 2 if the lime is dry)
Toss all the ingredients together in a bowl. Spoon over the tacos above.
