Would you just take a look at this stunning purple striped eggplant? Almost too good to eat (almost). Eggplants are a fantastic cooking ingredient for vegetarians and vegans in particular as they provide substance to a plant-based meal like the one I made for lunch today.
I pan fried a purple striped eggplant along with some smoked tofu and added a little avocado and tomato salad and some cauliflower rice to bring it all together.
Eggplants contain plenty of fiber which helps keep the digestive system moving. It also contains vitamins A, B & C along with minerals such as potassium & magnesium.
