Performance Food: Eggplant fuels your Brain, Heart and more!

This funny shaped shiny deep purple eggplant is full of nutrients that feed your Brain, Heart, Nose (olfactory gland) and Skin!  It took living in Istanbul to wake me up to how delicious eggplant is  – now it's a favorite.  Not too long ago, we braved having some Kid Kritics taste test an Eggplant Parmesan recipe*.  We even left the skin on the slices. Boy, did they love it!  Did they know what they were eating?  No.  We had to describe this vegetable to them.  Trick to cooking eggplant: after slicing it, sprinkle some salt on each side and let it sit for a few minutes.  Then rub off the salt and proceed with recipe.  This takes out any bitter flavors. Then smother it with olive oil, herbs and spices, tomato sauce and some dairy or non-dairy cheese.  Mmm Mmm Good. Try it!

… for the health of your family,
ellen
