The eggplant is one of these vegetables I choose once and more because, besides I love it, it is ideal accompaniment for uncountable preparations. One of my favorite ways to cook up eggplants is fried and crispy, but I avoid to make it in that form because it absorbs more fats. It is actually a pity that we have to step down the frequency we eat it in this way. For this reason, the last time I prepared eggplant I tried with breaded slices with cheese that I baked into the oven. The result was a crispy, tasty and healthier course.

Present in the human diet for 4000 years, the eggplant has some other common names in English: aubergine in British English, and also brinjalbrinjal eggplantmelongenegarden egg or guinea squash. Today, edible varieties are protagonist in the culinary culture around the world. We can find it in the Greek Mousaka, in the Arabian Baba Ganoush, in the Italian Caponata or Parmigiana, in the Catalan Escalivada and many other.

Although I´m pretty sure you´ll love this way, I´m gonna give you a tip just in case you consider frying eggplant anytime. If you put the eggplant into a bowl with salted water during 24 hours, you will get frying the pieces without extra fats. Why does it happen? Simple: the eggplant  pulp is full of air and it´s cavernous. When it is soaking, the water covers all this free space inside the pulp and later, when you fry it, the oil won´t be able to being absorbed. So, if you want frying eggplant, no matter if it´s breaded or not, put the slices into water with salt. Now, lets try our today´s recipe.

    Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.

    Any suggestions?
