Eggplants are some of the greatest vegetables – they look good, have high nutritional value, are easy to find and cook, don’t cost much, and are easy to grow. Since it is eggplant season where I’m from, I went to the market to buy some in order to cook some zacuscă. However, to my surprise, I found some eggplant variety of which I had no idea existed – little, round, light purple ones. Apparently, they are called Rosa Bianca. So, my curiosity told me to take them home and cook some Rosa Bianca eggplant recipes and see if they are tasty or not. I can confirm – they are tasty!
Even though it is not easy to find Rosa Bianca eggplant recipes, I tried to make a list of the ones I managed to find. Naturally, I decided to gather them here in case anyone else tries to cook something with this particular type of eggplant – they are less bitter than other varieties. Apparently, even though you can use them in any eggplant recipe you can find online, these 10 recipes are better when cooked using Rosa Bianca eggplants. Try them for yourself and tell me if you find them as tasty as I did!
