Three Healthy Recipes to Serve Up Eggplant This Summer
Eggplant, also known as aubergines, is a nutritional powerhouse. Its dark, thick skin offers plenty of antioxidants to aid in warding off disease and fiber for healthy gut maintenance.
When prepared, the veggie offers a meaty texture that combines well with flavors like garlic, tomatoes, chili, fresh herbs and more. Despite the meaty texture, it’s low in calories (20 calories per cup) which makes for an excellent side item. Extremely versatile, eggplants can be roasted, grilled, baked as mini pizzas, filled and even made into a luscious dip – baba ganoush.
