Mizu nasu, the “water aubergine” you can eat raw

GOURMANDE in OSAKA


Do you know these Japanese mizu nasu (water aubergines) ? The particularity is you can eat them raw.
Of course they can be cooked too, like here :

veggie mille-feuille

The wiki article in Japanese is very interesting. They explain that has been traditionally cultivated in Osaka for many years. I wonder if they are more common here than in the rest of Japan. In Summer, all local shops have them.

The simplest way : I slice them, salt, let a while and rinse. Then I use as a salad.

With sweet chili sauce.
