ingredients

directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice the eggplant into one-inch thick round cutlets and sprinkle each piece with a bit of salt. Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes, then gently rinse and pat dry.
  • Arrange the eggplant cutlets in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • Whisk together the remaining ingredients, except salt and pepper and brush this marinade onto each side of each piece of eggplant.
  • Bake for 7- 8 minutes. Brush with marinade again, and turn pieces over, then bake for another 7 - 8 minutes.
  • Heat oven to the broil setting, and broil for 2 - 3 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
  • These are delicious on their own, but you could also serve with additional hot sauce, if you like.

    Nice way to fix eggplant! I used sriracha sauce instead of Tabasco, scaled the recipe down to one small eggplant. Thanks! Made for Vegetarian Swap Feb. 2013.
