Eggplants are a great source of fibre, vitamin B and micronutrients like copper and manganese. Here’s how to make the best with eggplants: Fresh eggplants will have consistently shiny and smooth skin throughout the vegetable. If the colour is dull, it may have been stored poorly. Wrinkles are also a sign of old age among eggplants. As far as possible, buy organic eggplants as conventional farming uses numerous rounds of pesticide spraying in the life-cycle of an eggplant. Buy firm eggplants, they should give a little under your fingers, or they may be too raw.

Pick a vibrant coloured eggplant, the stem should be green and mould-free.

If two eggplants of the same size weigh different, pick the lighter one. Older, more mature eggplants have more seeds, thereby increasing their weight, and sometimes making them bitter.
