Also known as aubergine, this summer favorite is making an appearance on tables all over market. Known for it’s beautiful purple color, this veggie is high in antioxidants and low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Try them grilled, added to pasta, or pick up a container of Nur’s Kitchen’s Baba Ganoush for a treat!
