Let’s be honest, eggplants aren’t for everyone.
Some people find them too slimy or too seedy in texture, and others find its earthy, rooty flavour downright offensive.
I personally prefer not to associate with such people.
Alright, alright, I kid. I of course have several friends (and even a boss/business partner) of the eggplant-hating persuasion, and while I will forever be lost as to the mysterious ways in which their tastebuds work, I try not to let it bother me too much. After all, it means more babaghanoush for me, right?
