Breaded Eggplant

PicsArt_1395010397236 (1)So I’ve never really liked eggplant, which is naturally why I attempted to cook it. I keep cooking something until I find a way I like it, if possible.

About Eggplant – As well all know, or most of us, it is a purple glossy item. They are at their very best from August through October when they are in season.

Fun Fact: Eggplants belong to the nightshade family of vegetables, which also includes tomatoes, sweet peppers and potatoes.

Health Benefit: Eggplant also contains important phytonutrients, many which have antioxidant activity. Phytonutrients contained in eggplant include phenolic compounds, such caffeic and chlorogenic acid, and flavonoids, such as nasunin.
