Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Great Depression Cooking - Eggplant Parmesan

It has been awhile since I've done one of these types of posts. Depression era style cooking is coming very much into vogue because this style of cooking uses simple ingredients cooked simply. Depression cooking was built on need not trends or convenience foods. Issues like brand names are out the window. If you watch the video preceding this one, the dandelion salad is from dandelion harvested in Clara's backyard. Put in perspective she is eating something for free that many health conscious people pay for in the grocery stores as part of the gourmet spring salad mixes and others pay even more to rid their yards of creating health problems due to herbicide residues. Home gardeners know that eggplant is one of the frugal plants in their garden. Take a look at this easy eggplant parmesan meal done depression style.
