Eggplant Bacon

I was trying to figure out what to do with the eggplant I got in one of my recent CSA BOXES, and I remembered this recipe from EVERYDAY RAW. It looks a LOT like bacon.

Starts with chopping up some eggplant…

marinated
…marinate in a chipotle-like dressing.

Then, you just set it out to dry. I have to say that the biggest obstacle with these is the expectation that they will taste like bacon. Because they really don’t. When I first tried them, I was kind of put off by that. But then I came back to them later without that expectation, and I loved them.

Got to live in the now, I guess. Maybe I should just call them spicy eggplant sticks. That might go over better.
