2 Medium Eggplants
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste
Chili Powder (Optional)
Slice eggplant into rounds. Sprinkle generously with salt and allow to sit for about 1 hour to let the bitter juices come out. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. After 1 hour, rinse salt and juices from eggplant, pat dry, then slice the rounds into sticks (to resemble French fries).
Place eggplant onto a cookie sheet and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring once or twice, until softened and light golden brown. Broil if necessary to achieve desired crispiness.
