Delicious breaded eggplant

Delicious Breaded Eggplant

Today’s dinner was inspired from an app I use daily. I’m a Noom user and each day the personal coach gives me tips, information, and challenges to help me reach my fitness goals. On this day, I was challenged to try a new vegetable or have something I haven’t in a long time.

I headed to my local Publix and walked around the produce department. I thought maybe a root like yucca – but it’s something I eat at least monthly so I changed my mind. I ended up choosing eggplant.

I breaded and baked my eggplant and served it with ramen noodles -my guilty pleasure I eat too often. And don’t judge because there are SO many things you can make with ramen noodles!

Breading the eggplant was done much in the way I make my breaded steak.

Delicious Breaded Eggplant

Delicious breaded eggplant that is prepped and ready to eat in about 30 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs (or panko)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut eggplant into 1/2 inch slices (I like medallions, but it can be lengthwise, too).
  3. Dip eggplant slices in egg coating evenly.
  4. Toss eggplant slices in breadcrumbs, covering each side.
  5. Arrange eggplant slices on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes. Slices should feel soft.
  6. Serve and enjoy!

It turned out really good – the eggplant was crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. This would make a good filling as a veggie burger, too!
