Eggplant
Townsville's Favourite

Eggplant

Eggplant is a culinary delight, known for its rich, slightly sweet taste and silky texture. Grown with care, our eggplants are harvested at their peak, ensuring a flavourful addition to your meals. This versatile vegetable can be used in a variety of dishes, from classic eggplant Parmesan to hearty stews. Try it grilled with a drizzle of olive oil, or roasted and blended into a creamy dip. Whether you’re looking to add depth to your pasta or create a comforting curry, our eggplant is your go-to ingredient.

Selecting the freshest eggplant is easy with a few simple tips. Look for eggplants that are firm and heavy for their size, with a smooth, shiny skin. The colour should be vibrant and free of blemishes or bruises. The stem should be green and fresh, not brown or dried out, which indicates the eggplant is past its prime. When you press your finger into the eggplant, it should feel slightly firm and bounce back without leaving an indentation​.

Eggplant is incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in many delicious ways. For a simple yet tasty dish, slice and grill eggplant with a touch of olive oil and garlic. Add it to stir-fries for a hearty, vegetarian option. You can also bake it in the oven with tomatoes and cheese for a classic eggplant Parmesan. Another great idea is to make eggplant shakshuka – a rich and flavourful dish that’s perfect for any meal​​.
