This is the cool cousin of the aubergine with a stripy cream and purple skin. You can use it in just the same way it will just add some interesting colours to your dish!
Perfect for roasting, lasagnes or equally great in a curry.
Aubergine is very low in calories and fats but rich in soluble fibre content. Its skin has significant amounts of the phenolic flavonoids, anthocyanins. Scientific studies have shown that these anti-oxidants have potential health effects against cancer, ageing, inflammation, and neurological diseases. It also contains good amounts of many essential B-vitamins.
