While eggplants are commonly thought of as a vegetable, they are actually a fruit, and more specifically, a berry. There are many varieties of eggplants, ranging in color, shape, and size. Smaller Japanese eggplants, called for in this recipe, tend to be sweeter than the larger ones. The smaller eggplants are also nice because a half is the perfect size for a side dish.
