Nasu: Japanese Aubergine
Nutritional Information:Rich in potassium and phosphorus - although the 'per 100g' quantities listed below are considerably lower than those for Japanese leaf vegetables.
How to Enjoy it:Use for stir-fries (it goes very well with root ginger and soy sauce), tempura (deep fry with thin batter), oven dishes such as musaka, or pickle in salt.
Nasu does not store or freeze well. It can be kept in the fridge for a few days but is damaged at temperatures below 10 celsius.
