Lots of the time kids don’t like eggplant because of the texture. And I’ll be honest I love to grow eggplant. I think the fruits are just beautiful. I think we should eat it, but I have had to work hard to find and create recipes we like.

Most baked and roasted eggplant tends to be on the, well…slimy side and I don’t really care for that- but these baked eggplant crisps are the perfect amount of crispy and crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside!
