Don’t you just love eggplants? I can’t think of one dish with eggplant that I don’t like. The only problem with eggplants is that they absorb a lot of oil when frying and they don’t cook well in the oven. So you have to pick your poison (well the later is not a poison really and it’s actually very healthy), fried delicious eggplant or dry and healthy oven roasted eggplants. It’s up to you and your diet which one you pick, but roasting them in the oven is a much easier and healthier choice and we all know that healthy does not always equal delicious. It’s the sad truth.
These patties are delicious and perfect for a light dinner.
