To have dreamed of an eggplant, in Freudian terms, may be a representation of latent desires or repressed emotions, given its phallic shape.

Some additional thoughts on this: It could signify a need for emotional release or intimate connection. Alternatively, cooking or eating an eggplant may symbolize the process of integrating these repressed aspects into your conscious self. You are 'digesting' your emotions, so to speak, and coming to terms with them. This dream could be a call to confront and understand these hidden facets of your psyche, leading to a more harmonious and balanced self.
