I can eat everything made from eggplant/aubergine. This vegetable attracts me first with its purple color, then with its so special taste. This attractive vegetable is low in calories and it has a lot of benefits for our health. It relaxes nerves, decreases blood pressure and the level of cholesterol in blood.
Maybe that’s why Turkish cooks make over 100 types of eggplant dishes. Some people like it in different types of salad, some in stew, some like it with meat, some like it fried, some like its pickles… You see we can count a lot of different types of dishes made from eggplant. I love all of them. In this post, you will see eggplants in appetizer form. It is like a salad of grilled vegetables, but we call it eggplant salad or grilled eggplants or babagannus in some regions. Eggplant is the main ingredient here, you may omit any vegetables for this salad, but not eggplant. This appetizer is best when vegetables are grilled on a wood fire. So if you have a chance, try it and see how its taste changes.
