Baked eggplant with cheese

Eggplant.

It may seem complicated, but this appetizer is easy to make and you can save on calories using low-fat cheese. You’ll need: 1 eggplant, 2 egg whites, breadcrumbs, grated cheese, salt, pepper and thyme (or basil).

Instructions:

  1. Wash eggplant then cut thin, round slices.
  2. Put them on a big plate and sprinkle with salt. Leave for 30 minutes, then wash the salt off.
  3. In a bowl, beat the egg whites (you can use whole eggs if you don’t mind the cholesterol) and add salt, pepper and thyme (or basil).
  4. Dip each eggplant slice in the egg whites, then press it into the breadcrumbs.
  5. Put eggplant slices on a cookie tray and bake in the oven for 25 minutes, turning once.
  6. Remove from oven, sprinkle cheese on each eggplant slice, and then bake for 5 more minutes (or until cheese is golden).
