“Bonica” eggplant

Today we went to the Boqueria Marquet and we found the “Bonica” eggplant. You can find them in the Alt Empordà and Baix Empordà. It’s Dark purple color, white meat and soft flavor is one of the most wanted dishes in Carmelitas.

The eggplant contains multiple vitamins (A,B1,B2, C) and minerals. Its a vegetable with diuretic properties and helps in the bone calcification process.

The season ends in november, we invite you to Carmelitas to enjoy a escalivada (grilled egg plant with peppers and onion) or eggplant chips.
