Eggplant “Bacon”

Posted on












Makes enough “bacon brine” for 2 medium-sized eggplants:


2 tablespoons maple syrup


4 tablespoons tamari, or soy sauce


1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


2 teaspoon smoked paprika


1/2 to 1 teaspoon liquid smoke, depending on strength


1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


1/8 teaspoon cayenne


1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, a little coarser than usual


3 tablespoons olive oil


2 eggplants, sliced to about 1/8th inch



The original recipe calls for a 225 F. oven, but I would probably start this like I finished it, and that’s in a 250 F. oven. I’d plan on at least an hour baking time, but that will depend on thickness, pans, etc. Simply cook until they are how you want.


happy cooking.
