    My tummy says thank you! I cut mine a little thinner (1cm to 1/2 inch thick) and ONLY greased the cookie sheet because eggplant is super absorbent. I also only lightly seasoned mine with sea salt on one side. After about 10 to 15 mins I flipped the rounds and they were lightly browned and delicious. - 11/27/11

  • Just bought eggplant at the farmers market and didn't know what to do with it. This was very helpful. Like other users, I got mushy eggplant too. I think it is the type of eggplant we bought (purple skin). Still, it was yummy for a veggie I usually don't like. - 9/16/10

  • Wow! This is the first time I've rated a recipe. I decided that I liked it so much I should let everyone know. Of course I didn't have cayenne pepper. Used turmeric and cumin instead. Wasn't crispy but that didn't bother me. My 12 yo son also loved it. Grated a bit of fresh parmesan on top. - 5/26/10

  • I guess I didn't cook it right because mine came out mushy. - 3/6/09
