Though this recipe is vegetarian (not vegan or low calorie), this is a tasty way to eat eggplant vs. regular ole french fried potatoes. A great snacking appetizer.
What You Need
  • ¾ cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon (or to taste) fresh ground black pepper
  • oil for frying
  • 3 baby eggplants or 2 medium eggplants
  • salt for seasoning
  • honey *omit for vegan
How to Do It
  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, garlic powder, dried oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper until thoroughly mixed
  2. In a heavy-bottom medium saucepan, heat at least two inches of oil to about 350F
  3. Peel the eggplants and slice into ¾-inch thick fingers
  4. Toss the eggplant slices a few at a time in the seasoned flour until well coated.
  5. When the oil is ready, drop a few sticks of eggplant into the oil – they should begin sizzling immediately. Be sure not to overcrowd the pan or have the oil temperature drop too much
  6. When they begin to brown (about a minute) flip them over and cook for another 30 seconds to a minute.
  7. Remove the eggplant fries from the oil and let drain on a cooling rack.
  8. Serve hot with a shake of salt and a drizzle of honey, if desired.
