Fresh Australian Certified Organic whole Eggplant

Good quality this week but they do have some skin scratches and tarnishes - at a lower price, a little ugly but the content should still be excellent.

The eggplant, also known as aubergine, garden egg, guinea squash, melongene, and brinjal, usually has an egg-like shape and a vibrant purple color.

It is rich in fiber, low in calories, like most wholefoods, it provides a range of nutrients.

Eggplants also contain flavonoids, such as anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are water-soluble pigments that have many health benefits. They also help give the eggplant its well-known, dark purple color. The skin of the eggplant is rich in antioxidants, fiber, potassium, and magnesium.

This vegetable is generally prepared and cooked. To prepare your eggplant, slice off the very top and the very bottom. You can peel off the skin if you prefer, but it’s entirely edible. Cut eggplant into disks, strips, or cubes. Like most fresh wholefood vegetables, you can mash it, bake or roast it, braise or steam it, of pan fry or BBQ it..
