Saladmenu Herb Eggplant Rolls

Lately, I’ve been remembering all the great food my mom used to cook when I was growing up. She was a pretty decent chef! Another one of my favorite recipes that she prepared is her delicious Eggplant Rolls. Now not everyone loves eggplant, but I believe that’s just because they haven’t had it prepared well. I have always been an eggplant lover (thanks, Mom!), and was happy to hear that one cup of cooked, cubed eggplant contains from 20-35 calories.

Making Herb Eggplant Appetizer

I found a few more reasons to love eggplant, too; it contains fiber, which helps protect the digestive tract and control diabetes. While you can take the skin off of the eggplant for this recipe, I encourage you to leave it on—the skin contains nasunin, a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger shown to protect the lipids in brain cell membranes. I guess that kind of makes eggplant brain food!
