Preparation Tips for Aubergine

The preparation of aubergine (also known as eggplant) is key to unlock its full culinary potential. Pre-slicing and salting the aubergine not only reduces any natural bitterness but also allows it to absorb marinades and cooks evenly. Grilling or roasting the aubergine results in a delightfully smoky flavor. Always ensure it is adequately cooked to avoid a rubbery texture. With these measures, it can be transformed into a myriad of unique dishes, proving a testament to its versatility.
