Baked Eggplant Fries
These delicious and healthy eggplant fries are so simple but elegant enough to serve for your friends.
Peel, slice and soak your eggplant fries in cold water for around ten minutes. Dry thoroughly with some kitchen paper.
Whisk up a couple of egg whites until they form stiff peaks, and gently fold in a few handfuls of breadcrumbs – Japanese panko crumbs make a good choice.
Coat each piece of eggplant in this mixture and pop them in the fryer. Remembering to leave plenty of space around each one to crisp, cook for 10-15 minutes at 400°F, and there you go – perfect eggplant fries.
