After venturing to Rome a few weeks back, I’m still riding the pizza wave – although this pizza attempt could be consider a little *uh* creative. Instead, consider these a tasty way to get more veggies into your diet. I promise the scrummy garlicky pizza sauce will have you reaching for seconds or thirds (while simultaneously scaring off any vampires – you’re welcome).
Nutrition Spotlight: Eggplants
Eggplants, also known as aubergine, are a source of dietary fibre (necessary for a happy healthy gut), as well as a plethora of vitamins and minerals, including manganese, folate and potassium.
They boast a high number of antioxidants, particularly anthocyanin (also responsible for eggplants purple colour), which are iddy biddy substances that help protect our bodies against potentially harmful substances, known as free radicals.
Make the most of the eggplant season by including these beauties in your next shop – they’re great grilled, sautéed, diced in curries and stews, and of course on the BBQ…it’s kiwi summer after all!
