Q. How do I choose a good eggplant at the grocery store?

Look for an eggplant that is firm and heavy for its size with smooth, shiny skin. Avoid eggplants that are wrinkled, soft, or have brown spots.

Q. Do I need to peel eggplant before cooking it?

It depends on the recipe. If the skin is tough, such as with larger eggplants, it’s a good idea to peel it. However, with smaller eggplants, the skin is often tender and doesn’t need to be peeled.

Q. What are some healthy ways to cook eggplant?

Grilling, roasting, and baking eggplant are all healthy ways to cook it without adding too much oil or fat.

Q. Can eggplant be used as a meat substitute?

Yes, eggplant can be a great meat substitute in dishes like eggplant lasagna or eggplant meatballs.

Q. Are there any precautions I should take when handling eggplant?

Some people may experience an allergic reaction to eggplant, so it’s a good idea to wear gloves when handling it. Additionally, eggplant contains solanine, which can be toxic in large amounts, so it’s important not to eat too much raw eggplant.

Q. How do I remove the bitterness from eggplant?

One way to remove bitterness from eggplant is to sprinkle salt over the slices or cubes and let them sit for about 30 minutes. Rinse the eggplant under cold water and pat dry before cooking. Another method is to soak the eggplant in water with a tablespoon of vinegar for 30 minutes before cooking.

Q. Can I freeze eggplant?

Yes, you can freeze eggplant for later use. Slice or cube the eggplant, blanch in boiling water for 4 minutes, and then cool in ice water. Pat dry and freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet before transferring to a freezer-safe bag or container.

Q. Can I substitute eggplant in other recipes?

Yes, you can substitute eggplant for meat in some recipes, such as Eggplant Meatballs or Eggplant Bolognese. Eggplant can also be used as a substitute for zucchini or squash in some recipes.
