Tips for a good recipe for eggplant Bolognese in an airfryer

  • It is recommended to leave the aubergines in water and salt for at least one or two hours to remove the bitterness
  • Do not forget to make the cuts inside the aubergine (without breaking it) so that it cooks before
  • Cooking times depend on the quantity and size of the aubergines
  • We have more air fryer eggplant recipes , feel free to visit them!
  • If you do not want the aubergines to be gratin, do not reintroduce them with the cheese
  • Taste the bolognese before adding it to the aubergines to see if the acidity needs to be corrected
