Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Eggplant, peeled
  • 1/3 Cup flour
  • 1/2 Tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 Cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated OR 1/4 Cup Nutritional Yeast**
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • cooking oil spray

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Cut the eggplant into 1/2 inch wide by 2 inch long sticks* (1 medium eggplant makes about 40 sticks).
3. Making an “assembly line” of three bowls, place the flour and salt in the first bowl, the beaten egg in the second and bread crumbs and parmesan in the third.
4. Dip the eggplant sticks in the flour mixture, followed by the egg and then in the bread crumbs.
5. Place on a cooking rack over a baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking oil spray.
6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until soft inside and golden outside.
7. Serve with red sauce on the side.
*I placed the cut eggplant sticks on a paper towel for 5 minutes to absorb any moisture before dipping them.
