John from http://www.growingyourgreens.com/ shows you the best way to cook eggplant to retain more polyphenol antioxidants for the greatest health benefit. You will learn how easy it is to pressure cook eggplant so you can get the best benefits from eggplant.
In this episode, John will harvest fresh Japanese eggplant from his garden, and talk about growing eggplant in his organic garden. You will learn why he does not dehydrate his eggplant as they can lose high amounts of antioxidants, and instead uses an instant pot
Next, you will learn why John uses a pressure cooker to heat process his eggplant for just a few minutes to increase the antioxidant capacity of the eggplant and retain the highest level of plant phytonutrients. You will learn why he does not precut or pre-process his eggplant before cooking.
You will discover a scientific published study that shows 80%-90% loss of antioxidant capacity in eggplant from dehydration as well as more loss of antioxidant capacity from other cooking methods.
Finally, John will show you how you can cook the eggplant in a pressure cooker in just a few minutes. 5 Minutes on manual was used in this video, but now I only cook them for 3 minutes, and they turn out fine.
After watching this episode, you will learn the best way to minimally process your eggplant so you can eat them, and get more of your nutrients from plant foods even if you are not vegan or vegetarian.
