Eggplant Parmesan is a favorite dish for many, but if that’s your only experience with eggplant, you’re missing out!
This nightshade veggie, easily recognized by its shape and shiny purple skin, has a rich, hearty texture that makes it a great substitute for meat. Whether roasted, baked, or sautéed, eggplant can be the perfect complement to any number of recipes – from ratatouille to soups, stews, and curries. And with nutrients like potassium, fiber, and vitamins A and C, eggplant supports heart health and can help prevent certain diseases.
