Eggplant Chips

Only a few left.

While thumbing through Pinterest recently I came across an interesting article about an eight-year-old girl who cooks dinner for her family once a week. It was a fascinating article for me because I was thinking that it would be nice for Audrey to be able to make dinner for her family by the time she turns eight. While I was thinking this Audrey crawled into my lap and noticed a video on the website. She asked to see it.

The same eight-year-old girl explained how she and her mother made eggplant chips. Audrey asked to watch the video twice. 


The next time we were at the store I picked up a small eggplant. After we made the chips I wished I had selected a large eggplant. Don't make the same mistake I did.

Our friend Leah came for dinner the next night and I thought it the perfect time to try the new recipe as we were having lasagna.

I chopped the eggplant and Audrey did the rest. They turned out amazing! Leah and I gobbled them up so fast no one else had much of a chance to eat them. Audrey had one but Mo decided not to try them this time.

I am going to pick up a couple of eggplant next time we make a shopping run. Eggplant chips are so easy to make and they are purple so they fulfill a challenging color on our Rainbow Chart!

One quick tip: go easy on the salt as they need very little in order to be very salty tasting.

  4. I've never done eggplant chips, but we did zucchini chips (I just used the dehydrator) last summer when we had zucchini to use up, and we really liked them!

    1. These get crunchy and satisfy that salty craving in a healthy way. We have made them several times since!
