Eggplant Canapés

Total time
 
This makes approximately 20 slices, or 4 appetizer servings.

I was able to just get all 20 onto my baking tray, going up the edges a bit.

You can easily double the recipe, just make sure that you stagger your baking trays and add a bit of extra cooking time.

The eggplant we get these days is not as bitter as in the past, so I never pre-salt the eggplant as you have read in other recipes.
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 225 g (1/2 lb) eggplant
  • 15 g Brown Rice Protein Powder(or flour)
  • 45 g (1/2 cup) minced fresh parsley (I prefer flat leaf parsley)
  • 28 g (1/4 cup) panko bread crumbs
  • 20 g (1/4 cup) Almond Flour
  • 10 g (2 tsp) paprika
  • pinch (1/8 tsp) salt (omit or substitute another spice such as garlic powder if on a low sodium diet)
  • 60 g (1/4 cup) egg whites (or 1 whole egg)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 Fahrenheit.
  2. Wash the parsley leaves then wrap up in a kitchen towel to dry.
  3. With a sharp knife, cut the eggplant into thin (1/4 cm or ⅛ inch) slices.
  4. Put the brown rice protein powder into a bowl and lightly dredge both slides of each eggplant slice in the protein powder.
  5. Mince the parsley.
  6. In a large place combine the parsley, almond flour, panko crumbs, paprika, and salt.
  7. Put the egg whites into a bowl.
  8. Using one hand, dip a slice of eggplant into the egg white, gently shake off the excess, and then place on top of the crumb mixture.
  9. Using the other hand, dust both sides of the slice with the crumb mixture, shake off excess, and place onto a baking tray.
  10. Repeat with the rest of the slices, placing them in a single layer, going up the sides of the baking sheet if needed.
  11. Place the baking try on a rack in the middle of the oven and bake for 24 minutes total; flipping over the slices and rotating the baking tray mid-way through.
  12. Remove from the oven and enjoy.
