From as long as I can remember aubergines , especially fried, have been one of my most favourite vegetable. I love them with tomato sauce or garlic and dill dressing. Its a real treat with bread, or rice or even some potatoes.Today
I want to share with you one of my most favourite dishes in the world-aubergines stuffed with red wine mushroom sauce. This amazing vegetable also has some incredible health benefits .
Aubergines appear to play a special role in the treatment and prevention of a very serious condition which is skin cancer. In the December 2005 issue of Nutrition & Healing , Dr. Bill Cham’s publishes his 25-year journey of discovery and development of a cure for the two most common skin cancers, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma .
According to Dr.Bill Cham it cures them without harming normal skin in any way! You can read the detailed article here. Dr. Cham claims a high, safe cure rate with non-melanoma skin cancers from his own clinical testing.
There are also other benefits of eating aubergines also popular as eggplants.
Aubergines contains good amounts of many essential B-complex groups of vitamins such as pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (B3). These vitamins are essential in the sense that body requires them from external sources to replenish and required for fat, protein and carbohydrates metabolism.
Aubergines are also a good source of minerals like manganese, copper, iron and potassium. Manganese is used as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme . Potassium is an important intracellular electrolyte helps counter the hypertension effects of sodium.
The National Diabetes Education Program, Mayo Clinic and American Diabetes Association recommends to add aubergines in your diet diet as a choice for management of type 2 diabetes. The rationale for this suggestion is the high fiber and low soluble carbohydrate content of the aubergine.
Study results indicate that phenolic-enriched extracts of eggplant inhibit enzymes that provide a strong biochemical basis for management of type 2 diabetes by controlling glucose absorption and reducing associated high blood pressure (hypertension).
Over all eating cooked aubergines is not just beneficial for your health, but also very tasty. I am in love with the aubergines, made with some red wine and mushroom sauce. When you fry aubergines they become a sponge for oil , so if you are watching your fat consumption is always better to grill when possible, but for a real treat frying it tastes better.
