How to Cook Eggplant_BlogCover

It’s National Eggplant Month! Here at Red Sun Farms we use eggplant in so many ways – grilled, baked, pickled and more! This unique fruit (yes, fruit!) can be enjoyed in a number of delicious ways.

Our Red Sun Farms: How to Cook Eggplant Guide is here to help jump-start those new to eggplant or exploring different ways to enjoy this tasty and nutritious fruit.

 

When grilled, eggplant has a rich and firm texture, making it a popular ingredient in a variety of vegetarian recipes. Eggplant can easily be stored for up to seven days in the crisper section of your refrigerator, making it a great weekly meal-prep option! Here at Red Sun Farms, we recommend these tried and true eggplant storage tips.
