Eggplant Bake

Tired of the same old veggie routine? This recipe is fast and easy to make, and it brings a lot of flavor to the table. Rich in antioxidants like phenols and flavonoids, eggplant provides volume and a pleasant texture to help fill you up on fewer calories. Since the skin of the eggplant provides lots of fiber and phytonutrients like anthocyanin, don’t peel it!
