Aubergine (aka eggplant, melongene, brinjal or guinea squash) — one of the few vegetables that does great on the BBQ! Some say it is an aphrodisiac. Some grow it as a pot flower. How can you make use of it in the Dukan Diet?
Eggplants are delicious and very nourishing. Rich in dietary fiber (of course!). Not to be consumed raw as far as I know but you can cook them slowly (in a vegetable curry or French ratatouille) or grill like a piece of meat.
You can eat as much aubergines as you like in every phase except the Attack Phase and the PP days in Cruise Phase.

Aubergine (Raw) Nutrition Data ›
Decent low carb content and almost no sugars in it. Most of its carbs is valuable fiber. Not very rich in vitamins or minerals (a bit of Vitamin A & C and some Calcium and Iron) but eggplants culinary value makes up for it completely.
There are so many different kinds and colors of eggplants, I thought you may need some kind of Eggplant buyer’s guide (by BBC Foods).
