Baked Eggplant Rounds
I love eggplant, I think it is a very attractive piece of produce. I love the color and it’s cute little green hat. I still remember the first time I cut into a raw eggplant, I wanted to try it out at home before I ordered an eggplant dish at a restaurant and ending up not liking it! (Shooooot. Should’ve known!) I was a complete novice and thought the inside would be purple too!! HAHA. Obviously wrong, I just love the way the cream-colored meat of the eggplant contrasts with the skin… I digress!!! On to the recipe!
I found the following recipe years ago on a weight watchers forum, and it is easy, great, and healthy. Everyone needs a little more easy, great, and healthy in their lives:)
1 Eggplant, cut into 1/2″ wide rounds
1 cup mayo
1 T Herbs de Provence (or other favorite italian blend)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup shredded parmesan
Heat oven to 350 degrees
Cut your rounds.
Mix the Herbs de Provence in the mayo.
Mix parmesan and breadcrumbs.
Bake for approximately 40 minutes or to desired squishiness:):) or tenderness if the word squishy isn’t something you like to think of while cooking.
