Eggplants are among the most popular vegetables in the world, starring in everything from Greek moussaka, Middle Eastern baba ghanoush and Italy’s eggplant parmigiana, to France’s ratatouille and Japan’s nasu deng aku silky miso-glazed eggplant.
This versatile vegetable (also known as aubergine) ranges in colour from purple- black through pale green and variegated to white. It also comes in lots of sizes, from the more common large and bulbous variety to finger-slim Japanese eggplants and pea-sized South-East Asian varieties.
