Eggplants contain a lot of antioxidants and a high amount of Vitamin C, in addition to being a great source of dietary fiber and having a low amount of net carbs – only 3 g per 100 g. This makes them perfect for the keto diet as they are very versatile and can be cooked in a lot of different ways.

Here we’re proposing to you an extremely simple recipe for eggplant crisps that taste delicious and can be reserved either as a side dish or a keto alternative to chips.

It’s important to let the salted eggplant slices sit for approx. 1 hour, as this lets them dry out before baking. Otherwise they might turn out soft instead of crispy.

In addition to that, the slices need to be thin, otherwise you’ll need to bake them for longer. Each one of the herbs is optional and you can either skip it or replace with another one, according to your preferences (you can, for example, add powdered garlic or onion).

You can also add grated parmesan – in order to do so, sprinkle it on top of the eggplants around 3-4 minutes before taking them out of the oven.


Let’s Ketofy It!

Wash the eggplants thoroughly then slice them into chips. You can sliver them into your desire thickness but I prefer about ¼ cm thick for my chips.

Sprinkle the slices with salt to flavor. Set aside the plate with eggplant chips so that the eggplant can absorb the salt. Occasionally remove any unwanted liquids that form in the plate.

While preparing the eggplant, set the oven at 200 C to preheat.

Move the chips from the plate to a baking sheet. For more flavor, season the chips with olive oil and herbs. Flip the chips and season the other side.

Bake for 20 minutes or until the chips are as crispy as you like. Serve immediately.
