I am thinking that I would eat eggplant tomorrow

I don't want to fry it so as to avoid from oil. I may just grill it. I don't know if it can boil it and I don't know if it would taste great boiled or if anyone has does done that. So I would try to eat that and top that on my brown rice. I hope it would be such a wonderful meal tomorrow. I don't plan to cook a lot this week. I just want some simple meal with vegetables with no oil used as much as possible and no salt or any seasoning. I would just try squeeze some lemon or add any thing that would enhance the taste naturally.

Boiling is not really suitable for eggplant. Roasting, grilling and frying are the best. I just spray (or brush) a very little oil on them when roasting them to stop the surface going leathery. I have also roasted the eggplant whole, skinned it and combined the pureed flesh with tomatoes, onions, garlic and olive oil very much as this recipe: http://moroccanfood.about.com/od/saladsandsidedishes/r/Zaalouk_Recipe.htm It makes an excellent dip to eat with flat bread (pita bread or naan or whatever kind of bread you use). To reduce salt in a recipe, use winter savory or nigella seed. A pinch of sugar also helps to enhance the flavour of some things.

Boiling eggplants are possible, if you are into fish sauce. Some people situated in the provinces love to dip the boiled eggplant with tomatoes into a cup of fish sauce. It is like you are in the picnic along the side of the beach or river.

I would either grill or roast the eggplant. As another person said, boiling it will just make it terribly rubbery--definitely not the wonderful meal for which you are hoping. You could also make eggplant parmigiana. Of course, that would take a number of other ingredients, and it would entail a bit more effort.
