Finishing Up

Eggplants are so rich in many nutrients, fibre, carbs, potassium and vitamin C are some of them. It is also high in antioxidants, which makes it one of the best veggies to add to your diet. This easy paste is an example of how to incorporate it into your meals.

I always end up snacking all the Eggplant Caviar away during my work breaks. A tortilla, a chip, a piece of bread, or a tarallo (Italian speciality) and I dip it in. Let me know in the comments below which is your favourite way to eat it!
