Eggplant Toast

Eggplant Toast

Eggplant really shines as a substitute for bread, pita or a burger bun. The texture resembles bread holds up well to juicy toppings and the preparation couldn’t be easier. Eggplant is a rich source of fiber, thiamine and copper. This is my go to bun for grilled items like burgers, chicken and kabobs. Eggplant pita is a family favorite.

Recipe Notes

Be sure to peel the eggplant as the skin is tough and can be bitter. Use a minimal amount of olive oil because eggplant is porous and will absorb as much oil as you apply. Don’t want a toaster fire!
