Looks like eggplant. I've seen little green one like this labeled as Thai eggplant.

Yes, they are indeed Thai eggplants. I'd never seen them before last week. I'll be posting more about these today.

Eggplant! They are such fun to hollow out, fill with a great breadcrumb-eggplant-onion-garlic filling, and steam. Enjoy.

i dunno how to cook these young eggplants but i saw a lot of Thai people eat them raw. Just dip them in fish sauce and take a bite.

They're green Thai eggplants. Called ma-keua in Thai.

You can put them in green curry:

Easy to make vegetarian, just omit the shrimp paste from the curry paste, and add salt instead.

I have been eating these all summer. I get them at the asian market in my neighborhood. They are delicious sliced in half, tossed in olive oil and broiled until brown (fifteen-twenty minutes depending on how big they are). Finish with a little sea salt.
