Eggplants are prized for their vivid color, which can be purple, white or green as well their unique taste and texture. Eggplants also contain phytonutrients that improve blood circulation and nourish the brain. While this isn’t an ‘everyday’ vegetable for most people, the benefits of eggplant make it a great option from time to time. (1)

Testing for ripeness: gently press the skin with your finger, if it springs back the eggplant is ripe!
