    Karen67's Note:

    I found this recipe when I was watching my carbs. It was described as a substitute for salad croutons, and I think they would be great that way. But, I've also used them as a chip for hummus, and it is a great combination. By the way, Japanese eggplants are smaller skinny eggplants.

      These are delightfully YUMMY! Oh what's more, DH who DETESTS aubergines, had a slice!! I served them with sour cream. I was a bit sceptical about drying out the slices in the oven, I have to admit, but I was completely wrong. Thank you Karen for sharing such a wonderful recipe. This is in my 'to-make-each-and-every-week' file already.

      I really enjoyed how these turned out! It's important to let the eggplant get dry with the salting process, so don't skip it! Loved the flavor! Thanks Karen!
