Prep & Store

Rinse eggplant. If it is young, the skin is edible. As it ages, the skin becomes bitter and may need peeling. Cut eggplant just before cooking, salt, and let it weep for 20 minutes to remove any bitter flavor.

Tasty Tip

Cut eggplant into cubes and bake in tomato sauce with onions, garlic, and fresh oregano.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Brown eggplant strips in olive oil over medium-high heat. Add a 1/2 cup (30 grams) finely minced parsley, 1 clove of minced garlic, and add balsamic vinegar and salt to taste.
