Eggplants and Peppers

Somewhat ironic that around the longest days of the year, the nightshades are at their best… but that’s for another time.

Late summer is a great time for eggplants, capsicums and chilis. They’re super flavoursome and nice and crisp and juicy.

Grill them on the BBQ or roast them up for a summer salad. Capsicums also go fantastically in a watermelon gazpacho (check our recipe if you don’t believe it). You also can’t quite beat a homemade Baba Ganoush for a picnic spread.

Nightshades are usually good all the way through autumn as well, so you’ve got a little time to give them a little love…
