Eggplant is one of those fruits (yes, it’s technically a fruit not a vegetable) that you either love or hate, but if you are a hater, you might want to give it another try. Roasting it not only changes the texture, but also, the flavor. And go for smaller ones that are less bitter and have fewer seeds. The skin of the eggplant is rich in antioxidants, fiber, potassium, magnesium, and it has natural diuretic properties which help with bloating.
