SAN ANTONIO – Quarantine has forced some people to cook more at home and has inspired even more to think of different ways to spice up their favorite recipes.
David Elder Zoomed in with chefs and celebrities to see what ingredients they think you should try and incorporate into your next dish:

Find an old jar in your refrigerator, that is still good, and add it to your next dish.
3) Eggplant - Challenged by Ursula Pari, KSAT 12 News Anchor
Ursula recommends frying the eggplant and adding it to your pizza. Yum!
