Immediately before cooking eggplant rinse under cold water and possibly peel.


Eggplant to put a small amount of cold water, if we want this to their taste and aroma passed into broth (eg. Cooking soup). If you cook eggplant as a separate dish, we throw them into boiling water - thanks to retain most of their juices. The whole eggplant simmer for 20 minutes. Diced eggplant simmer for 10-12 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Immediately after setting with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To see if eggplants are already cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, they are ready.


When cooked, drain off eggplant and peel. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.


Serve topped with melted butter and sprinkled with breadcrumbs.

Bon appétit!
