Baked Eggplant Chips

With the announcement that google reader will be shut down soon, please Follow my blog with Bloglovin


Eggplant isn't a vegetable that I buy too often, but in an effort to get more acquainted with all different types of vegetables, I picked up an eggplant at the supermarket last week, determined to try out some new uses for it. First up, baked eggplant chips. I saw these on pinterest and thought I'd give them a try. I've been chowing down on baked eggplant chips almost every day this week, and even added some to my salads and a tortellini dish on Monday night! This is an excellent, and super easy recipe!
What's your favorite eggplant recipe?

from Kitchen Psycho

Ingredients:
1-2 eggplants, preferably Japanese variety
olive oil
sea salt

Directions:
Slice eggplant, with a mandolin or other slicer, into 1/4" thick slices. Brush lightly both sides of each slice with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt or garlic salt. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet, and place slices on sheet. Bake at 400 for about twenty minutes. About ten minutes in, flip slices over and continue to bake until browned.
