The Aubergine or Eggplant is a soft fleshy absorbent fruit, sometimes treated as a vegetable which is used all over the world and is best cooked, as raw it has a bitter taste.

It can be boiled, stewed, deep fried, pan fried, put on the barbecue or roasted like the way we made these mini pizza.

Storing your eggplants/aubergine is best inside the fridge where they can last for 7 to 10 days or around 5 days at room temperature in a dark part of your kitchen cupboard.
