Tips and tricks on Eggplant

Eggplant Eggplant

Eggplant is not very popular in Canada compared to some other
countries. It’s a beautiful vegetable and it’s just as good for you
as it is for cooking.

  • Its peel is packed with antioxidants. It’s best to leave it on.
     
  • Eggplant is low in calories.
     
  • It easily soaks up fat, so go easy on the oil when cooking
    eggplant.
     
  • When cooked, it can be mashed into baba ghanoush, a Middle
    Eastern dip (or spread).
