Eggplant aubergine brinjal

How to cook aubergine

Eggplant recipes are really very easy and quick. They are deliciously simple. But I love them really because any food that tastes good, is healthy and can be prepared in a short time, is surely a winner! In Europe this page would be called how to cook aubergine.

I do have to admit though, eggplant is a bit of an acquired taste. I'm glad I've acquired it - because then I can eat cholesterol-rich foods like butter that I love, without guilt. Eggplant counteracts cholesterol-rich food so we eat them at least twice a week.

Aubergine is the name of the fruit borne on the Eggplant bush. It's chief virtue, other than the fact that it tastes so good, is its proven support for those with raised cholesterol. Exercise too helps, obviously. Exercise and cholesterol ...

One glass of red wine, fatty fish like salmon and mackerel, omega-3 in freshly ground flaxseed, fruit, salad... so much to be done for high cholesterol that doesn't have the nasty side effects of statins. Suffering from impotence?

Fried aubergine - ingredients

  1. One large or two small eggplant.
  2. One egg, lightly beaten; add a little water.
  3. All purpose flour in a soup dish.
  4. Olive oil.

This is altogether the most delicious way to eat brinjals, as the Indians call eggplant. It originated in the Subcontinent apparently. Eaten as the side dish for a green salad, you need not feel guilty about the relatively high fat content of fried aubergine.

PREPARATION

  • Cut the eggplant into slices about 7-10 mm thick. No need to peel. Salt and wipe them clean after about 10 mins if you are feeling strong! Especially if the brinjals are a bit old. It draws any bitter juices out, but frankly I don’t bother.
  • Dab the aubergine slices (both sides) into the flour.
  • Drop into the beaten egg-water mixture.
  • Heat some coconut oil in a heavy pan. Cheat with a little butter, too, if your cholesterol is normal. Then they won't stick. Definitely do not use hard margarine, high in trans fats. Why? HYDROGENATED FOODS ...

    Pour a glass of red wine: CHOLESTEROL ALCOHOL One! A biggy!
  • Drop the floured and egged brinjal slices into the hot oil and immediately turn the temperature down. Dribble a little olive oil onto the up side and flip the slices as soon as they are brown. Watch them like a hawk - they can burn very quickly. Salt them lightly.

Sweet and sour eggplant

For a variation, try this sweet and sour eggplant. Fry your brinjals as above. Then make up this sauce.

  • 1 tsp finely chopped jalapeno chilli
  • 1 clove of garlic, pressed or finely slivered
  • 1 TBSP of red wine vinegar
  • 2 TBSP of a decent soy sauce

Pour your sauce over the hot fried eggplant slices and allow to cool. I particularly like them still slightly warm on a thickly buttered slice of our vegan seed bread.

You can also make an eggplant salad with fried white fish for a variation; then it's a whole meal. Coat your fish fillet with olive oil and sizzle in a hot pain for not more than ten minutes.

On a white plate to give nice contrast, place the fish and cover with the sweet and sour eggplant; sprinkle with finely chopped cilantro.

Olive garden salad recipe

Your fried eggplant recipe is quite rich, but because of the special cholesterol binding properties of the aubergine, and the anti-cholesterol properties of olive oil, you needn't worry. Still, all fried food is quite high in calories, so it's best enjoyed with a salad sidedish.

Tauge, bean sprouts, add an extra dimension of health and taste to every salad. Make sure there is some tomato. Actually aubergine and tomatoes are first cousins. Did you know that a tomato a day will decrease by 50% the most common fatal cancer in men? TOMATO PROSTATE ...

Blood Pressure

Researchers in China, Military Medical Hospital found that:

Previous studies have suggested a role for plant compounds in lowering cardiovascular risks including hypertension (high blood pressure). In a new study, researchers found that long-term consumption of chili peppers reduced blood pressure in hypertensive rats. The substance capsaicin improves vaso-relaxation and helps prevent hypertension.

Peppers, whether the spicy, red-hot chili or the bell pepper are particularly rich in substances called phyto-chemicals. There are thousands of them, and researchers are now coming up with heaps of evidence about their anti-oxidant and cancer-preventing properties.

For example, you may have heard of lycopene, the photochemical in tomatoes that prevents prostate cancer. Beta-carotene is another well known phytochemical. It's the precursor to vitamin A and gives carrots their orange colour.

You may be wondering: Why eggplant recipes and all this talk about phytochemicals on a chiropractic website? Chiropractic is much more than having your spine well-adjusted. Whilst we spend our hours freeing up subluxations, we know that to keep our patients healthy and happy we have to emphasize healthy diet, the body in motion, the alert mind, and if you want to think about truly abundant living, then of course the spirit too.
