Eggplant Fries {Gluten Free, Paleo}

This combination is dynamite. After all, people have refereed to eggplants as one of the world’s healthiest foods. And when you combine a crunch, as well as, the nutrients – amazing!

Plus, eggplant is low in calories — just 20 calories per cup. So this little dish is low fat and will keep that figure in check. And they are also way low in carbohydrates (if you are watching those).

Natural News lists these three things as the best benefits of this purple plant: high in nasunin (cancer preventative), loaded with chlorogenic acid (antiviral) and is rich in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber.

You will need: 1 eggplant, olive oil, salt and pepper and garlic powder.

On a cutting board use a knife to chop up your whole eggplant into fry pieces. Eggplant is soft and easy to chop up. So, this will not be too difficult.

Place the pieces in a bowl and drizzle 2 heaping tbps of olive oil over the fries. Mix up with a large fork to make sure all the pieces are covered.

Sprinkle on your salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Then mix the spices in with a large fork. You want to make sure your seasoning covers the fries.

Set the oven to 400. Line a pizza tray or flat tray with foil and dump out your eggplant fries on the pan. Let them cook in the oven for about 25 minutes or until lightly brown.

Enjoy your nutritious fries!
