One Ingredient, Four Ways: Eggplant

Eggplant is at its plump and shiny best in the summer months, so it’s high time we shared four of our favourite Asian recipes using eggplant. Try spicy eggplant curries, Japanese-style eggplant with miso, and a light Asian salad with a zesty lime dressing. And because eggplants are in peak-season right now, there’s no need to salt them to remove any bitterness.
