Crispy Eggplant Chips

If you’re a fan of eggplant then your gonna LOVE these.  Crispy on the outside and super soft on the inner, we dare you to stop at just a few. Served on their own with a drizzle of honey and lemon zest or, as a side to a good ol coleslaw.  The eggplant could easily be replaced with veg of choice… parsnip, courgettes, kumara.

  • 1 cup of almond milk (or milk of choice)
