Turmeric Buckwheat Stuffed Aubergine Print 7 LikeDislike By giada mazzer I love all kinds of stuffed vegetables and one I prefer most is aubergine (eggplant), because its flavor is so rich and comforting. Everybody’s now talking about quinoa, which I love and use very often, but I also love buckwheat as an alternative. Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat and is gluten-free. I also love turmeric, with its pepper-like aroma, sharp taste and golden color. Because it’s thought to contain antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, anticarcinogenic, and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric has been used to help with preventing cancer, relieving arthritis, controlling diabetes, reducing cholesterol levels, and as an immunity booster.
