Sooo much easier and healthier than frying the eggplant. I took the advice of placing salted eggplant in colander for 1 hour. I weighed it down by placing a nest of bowls on top of the eggplan...

Make sure you salt the eggplant and let them drain for at least an hour. I did it for 1/2 and hour, and they were still bitter. The crispness from the baking is satisfactory, and the fact that...

This was absolutely fantastic. Took others advise and salted the eggplant in a collander and let sit for about an hour. Just wiped off with paper towels and proceeded from there. Kids and hus...
