When I'm in the mood for something salty to snack on I usually grab a bag of chips and proceed to devour it in an entire sitting. So I'm always looking for a healthy and tasty alternative. A few weeks ago my girlfriend introduced me to a simple recipe for baked eggplant. While eggplant isn't exactly as exciting as chips, this recipe makes for a delicious and satisfying snack without the guilt.
-Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
-Cut eggplant in half, then slice eggplant into 1/2 inch slices.
-Brush both sides of eggplant with olive oil.
-Sprinkle with salt and pepper (I used "Slap Ya Mama" to make it spicy), and place on a non-stick baking tray, or on tin foil.
-Bake for around 30 minutes.
-Remove, let cool, and eat!
