Organic Aubergine

400g – 500g

Description

Also known as an eggplant, aubergines are a great and colourful addition to any plate. A sweet and slightly fruity taste when cooked. They cook quickly and the flesh is thin and tender so it does not need to be removed. Aubergines can also be halved, hollowed slightly, stuffed, and baked with vegetables and grains. What’s not to love!

Wash before eating.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed and are not uniform in size. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Taste is what we believe in, because it’s what’s inside that counts. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.
