Eggplants are a great side dish to make for dinner. They are low in calories and loaded with vitamins and nutrients. Easy to use and you can make a variety of different meals with them.
I have gathered below some of the best eggplant recipes for you to try. There are many options of recipes to choose from. They are quick and easy to make.
How To Choose Eggplants
I like to look for eggplants that have smooth shiny skin. Usually, I buy smaller-sized eggplants. They tend to be less bitter.
Also when buying your eggplants, pick it up, it should feel heavy, usually telling you that it is fresh.
Tips For Cooking Eggplants
Store in the crisper of the fridge: Store for about 4-5 days, I find that if you leave them longer they tend to become bitter.
Peeling: If you are using small eggplants you don’t need to peel as the skin tends to be thin and tender. For larger eggplants, I like to peel the skin off.
Cooking: There are a variety of different ways to cook eggplants. You can fry, roast, bake, or grill.
