Spicy Eggplant Chips

spicy eggplant chipsLast summer, we got huge eggplants in our box several weeks in a row. I always dreaded trying to find something to make with eggplant. When we got our first eggplant this year, I found this recipe for Eggplant Chips from What’s Gaby Cooking, and decided to try it. My first effort was not so successful, because I cut the eggplant too thickly. This time, I used the thinnest slicing blade on my food processor (2mm), and they were much better! The Cajun seasoning makes them taste great alone, or you can serve them with salsa.

Ingredients
  • 2 small eggplant
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (low sodium if you can find it)
Instructions
  1. Wash and peel eggplant. Slice eggplant with 2 mm blade of food processor.
  2. Place eggplant in a single layer on a parchment paper covered baking pan. Sprinkle with salt. Let sit 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blot moisture from both sides of eggplant slices and return to pan.
  4. Mix olive oil and Cajun seasoning. Brush onto both sides of eggplant slices.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown. Watch carefully to prevent burning.

I think I’m going to make these again, as a game day snack. With football season coming up, what are you planning to eat on game day?

Happy eating!
