Garden Eggs



                                     


Garden eggs are yummy vegetables, some are sweet, some are a little bitter, but whatever or however it comes, they are a very good source of nutrition.
We call it garden eggs here in Nigeria and it is the most presented ''Kola'' used to entertain visitors in our homes. 

Eggplants are very versatile and can also be boiled, steamed, fried, grilled or baked. I have written about them before HERE I can't get enough of these food of the gods!

Have you tried using it as a sauce for boiled yam? my Edo State brethren can testify to its wonderful taste.
Eggplants are Low in calories and sodium, eggplants have a phytochemical called monoterpene that may help prevent cancer cell growth.


How eggplant got its name? In the Middle Ages, traders brought a certain kind of eggplant to Europe, a rare white variety shaped just like a chicken egg. So the vegetable was called eggplant, and the name stuck, even when the familiar purple eggplant reached Europe years later.
See more benefits:

  • The skin of an eggplant is contains a high amount of phytonutrients that helps protect the lipids in your brain cell membranes.
  • Eggplant also contains lots of antioxidants. Nasunin is an antioxidant that helps protect your cells from free radical damage. Phenolic compounds are also antioxidants that help protect against oxidative stress and bacterial infections.
  • Eggplant has been used to help lower cholesterol levels.
  • Eggplant is extremely high in fiber and this can help prevent constipation, colitis and hemorrhoids.
  • Eggplant also helps lower your risk for coronary heart disease.
