Eggplants are a typically summer vegetable so it is best to consume them in this season, from June to September. They are very rich in mineral salts, specifically potassium, phosphorus and magnesium and contain many vitamins, in particular vitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin K and vitamin J.
Eggplants have a strong diuretic and draining power because they contain a lot of water. Thanks to the high fiber content, they also help to keep cholesterol at bay and above all to regulate intestinal functions. Eggplants also have a low calorie intake and therefore, if cooked lightly, they are also recommended for those on a diet. Finally, like all other purple vegetables, they have antioxidant power.
In short, the benefits of aubergines are so many, that’s why they should be part of the diet of all of us during the summer months. Try them yourself in the recipe for spelled gnocchi with eggplant, cherry tomatoes and creamy fresh cheese.
