These delicious eggplant fries are shaped like fries, but they have the taste and texture of Calamari. If you dip them in marinara sauce or vegan cocktail sauce, you might not know the difference. You can eat them plain, but we ate them with leftover Vegan Ranch Dressing.
Eggplant is a good source of fiber and potassium, as well as Vitamin B6. According to the National Institutes of Health, “Vitamin B6 in coenzyme forms performs a wide variety of functions in the body and is extremely versatile, with involvement in more than 100 enzyme reactions, mostly concerned with protein metabolism.”
We used half the eggplant for these fries and the other half for our Grilled Eggplant Sandwich. We ate the sandwich for lunch and the fries as a side dish with dinner. Nothing goes to waste in our house!
These eggplant fries pair well with our Chickpea Kale Salad Sauté.
