Eggplant

eggplant

Everybody cooking knows about the eggplant –

great addition to a stew – and staple of Mediterranean cooking

good baked in the oven , stewed or even in a soup

purple in colour – though some mistake it for black

liked by vegetarians for its meaty texture

a fruit of its plant, though its referred as a vegetable

nice to eat in a salad with a dressing

together with feta, olive oil, olives and tomatoes – a wonderful supper dish

Olive tree

#coloryourworld #cyw #olive-green

hanging delicately from your branches

in a cast of thousands

your colour casts Down on white chalky soil

as you soak up the rays from the Mediterranean sun

what you hold is prized up and down the land

by the farmer, the chef and the food fan

as you paint the town green

under azure blue skies.
