Eggplant bloom

Eggplant bloom from my terrace garden...


Nutritionally, eggplant is low in fat, protein, and carbohydrates. It also contains relatively low amounts of most important vitamins and minerals. A 1998 study at the Institute of Biology of São Paulo State University, Brazil, found eggplant juice to significantly reduce weight, plasma cholesterol levels, and aortic cholesterol content in hypercholesterolemic rabbits.

  39. Eggplant is one of my favorites...though I think the addition of cheeses and other assorted ingredients might add many calories and "bad for you" attributes. I LOVE baingan bharta which I never had till I lived in Mumbai....absolutely yummy. This is a beautiful photo, Shiju.
