Garden Egg Fufu | Eggplant Fufu | Low Carb, Keto-Friendly Fufu

Hey guys! Just like with the cabbage fufu, we can use aubergine or eggplant to make low carb, keto friendly swallow meal for those who do not want to miss out on a swallow meal while on a low carb diet Again, it's not only those that are on a strict low carb diet that should eat this

If you love eating the classic fufu recipe For instance, I must eat a fufu meal every single day for lunch I can decide to eat these low carb fufu meals 3 days out of seven days of the week and I know that in doing so, I will be helping my body I can eat these while I am still eating rice, yam and other foods that contain high amounts of carbohydrates So it's not just for those doing keto

This is similar to the cabbage fufu The link to the cabbage fufu recipe should pop up on the screen right now The eggplant is in the garden egg family It smells like garden egg but while we can eat raw garden eggs, it is not advisable to eat raw eggplant, you need to cook it first In Nigeria you can buy eggplant in some open markets and in big super markets

The eggplant you see in Nigeria may look like this I saw this one in a market in Nigeria, I showed it in one of my Follow me to Market videos You can also use garden eggs I prefer the white garden eggs because they make better looking garden egg fufu To make the eggplant fufu, some people call it eggplant amala because of the colour, you will need eggplant or aubergine and a binder

I will be using psyllium husk for those who are on a strict low carb diet If you are not on a strict low carb diet that is you just want to slightly reduce carbs here and there, you can actually bind the eggplant with Quaker oats, even a little bit of flour But if you are on a keto diet you must use psyllium husk Xanthan gum does not work well with eggplant fufu It makes it too soft

We start by cutting the eggplant into small pieces so that we will get a good blend Blend it with as little water as possible If you are using garden eggs, do the same You need a muslin bag to sieve it If you don't have, use a washed brand new pillowcase

Because of the texture of eggplant the water seeps out easily so you do not need to place heavy objects on it To save the nutrients, I pour the water into the pot and boil till it has reduced considerably Then add the egg plant puree Stir and when it heats up, cook for another 5 minutes Stirring all the time so that it will be evenly heated up Add 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk

Keep stirring for another 2 minutes And you will see it come together Wrap in a plastic film and leave it to cool down a bit before eating so that the texture will improve If you are on a strict low carb diet, you MUST serve it with a low-carb Nigerian soup The full list will be in the description box below this video

But for any other person, you can serve it with any Nigerian soup for swallows
