Eggplant (Aubergine) Croutons

Eggplant (Aubergine) Croutons created by Sharon123

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Slice eggplant into rounds and 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
  • Place slices directly on an oven rack, carefully laying them out so they don't fall between the bars. Bake for 20 minutes or until the eggplant shrinks and becomes dry.
  • Lightly rinse each slice to remove excess salt. Pat dry with paper towels.
  • Combine oil and paprika in a small frying pan.
  • Oven medium-high heat, cook each slice on both sides until crips and browned, 3-4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.

    Thanks a lot to suggesting us to "precook and remove water" from the eggplants in the oven with salt prior frying them. This saves a lot of time and the eggplants soak less oil. Great recipe!

    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!
