Top 5 Aubergine Recipes (from Bloggers)

This delicious vegetable (technically a fruit) is part of the nightshade family – known as Brinjal in South Africa, South Asia & Southeast Asia or Eggplant in America, Canada & Australia or Aubergine in most other countries.

Easily recognizable by its egg-shaped purple appearance (and milk white fleshy) – it is most widely known as a key ingredient in Moussaka or Ratatouille. But this ingredient is closely related to both the tomato & the potato… making it versatile with a rich depth of flavor once cooked. (It is often recommended to salt, rinse & drain the sliced fruit in order soften it & reduce the amount of fat it absorbs during cooking… but some cultivated varieties don’t need this)

Because of it’s full flavours – it is often used as a meat substitute… and that is why we are please to share with you these recipes from some of our bloggers.
