Spicy Baked Eggplant

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.

Directions:
-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!

Do they get crunchy? At all?

Sold! I love Eggplant, I'm definitely making this. Zucchini works well too but my favorite non-heart-stopping salty snack these days has to be polenta fries. Amazing and so easy!

i have heard such horror stories from eggplant, how difficult it is to work with in cooking, so have always avoided it in my own culinary adventures. lately, though, i too need a break from chips and cookies and other unhealthy riff raff, great recipe suggestion.

I always love to have healthy savory snacks in lieu of chips. My faves are kale chips (obvs) and baked chickpeas! Can't wait to try this one out!
