By: pjy Fri, 24 Sep 2010 20:51:29 +0000 have you tried using very very thin slices of eggplant, baked until they are crispy like a potato chip?

You’d get the eggplant flavor and the crunch texture without the breading.

By: Faith Kramer Fri, 24 Sep 2010 20:21:26 +0000 Try oven frying the eggplant instead of roasting.
Let me know if you need tips for this, but it should be a good compromise between health and mush. (be sure to keep your slices thin)

You can also try grilled eggplant — the smokiness might work well with the flavors you have going on with this.

That doesn’t mean u have to necessarily abandon this delicious version. You can have this one until you perfect the healthy version. But I’d definitely keep trying new things until I get what I want.

I’m relatively new to cooking & grew up in a family that “made” stuff; they didn’t “cook”. I was away for 4yrs & nobody believed that I now do more than phone in an order so I’ve been cooking alot since I’ve been back. I like to try new things & not just the basic food we had as kids. It’s hit & miss. Sometimes it turns out great, sometimes it’s a hot mess! I don’t get discouraged though b/c at least I’m trying! And I’m learning as I go.

Great discoveries can be made from experimenting. And what fails in one recipe, can be successful with another.
