Description

Loosely adapted from the Crispy Aubergine Pesto Pasta from Top with Cinnamon’s new Cookbook! EGGPLANT TIPS!

  • Buy a narrow eggplant - the really big wide ones don’t get as crisp!
  • Don’t skip the salt / drain step - it really helps draw out the bitterness.
  • Once coated, make sure you get the eggplant in the oven as quickly as possible so it doesn’t sit there absorbing any excess moisture.
  • Really press down on the eggplant after rinsing to ensure you get all of the water out you can.
  • Although it’s an extra step, browning the eggplant in the skillet in addition to baking yields the crispiest result!

    Directions

    1. Slice eggplant into thin rounds slightly less than 1/2 inch thick, and sprinkle each side liberally with sea salt. Arrange in a circular pattern in a colander and place in the sink to draw out the bitter taste of the eggplant.
    2. Let rest for 15 minutes, then rinse and arrange on a clean absorbent kitchen towel. Top with another clean dish towel and lay a baking sheet on top. Place something heavy on top, such as a cast iron skillet, to thoroughly dry for at least 10 minutes.
    3. In the meantime, preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil and spritz with nonstick spray. Also, if making pasta, bring water to a boil in a large saucepan.
