My first time cooking eggplant!
I don’t really like eggplant but it’s so healthy that I am trying to acquire the taste. It’s skin has the phytonutrient, nasunin, which protects brain cell membranes! Also it’s fleshy and tastes like a starchy vegetable yet only has 20 calories per cup. This was the easiest way I found to prepare eggplant: 
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F 
Brush sides with olive oil
Season with salt and pepper 
Bake for ~20 minutes or until tops are brown
Season with lemon juice when done 
Baking or roasting vegetables is so simple, quick, and keeps your recipes clean =) Anyone else like eggplant and want to share a recipe?
