The secrets of eggplant
- To reduce bitterness we cut them in slices and sprinkle with coarse salt. We let them strain for 30 min. We place a heavy plate on top of them so the air trapped in the sponge like flesh can get out.
- After we wash out the salt from the slices with plenty of water and then cook them.
- The eggplant is a vegetable that characterises the Mediterranean diet.
