Coconut Crusted Eggplant

Morsels of Life - Coconut Crusted Eggplant - Eggplant, dipped in an Asian-inspired sauce, then dredged in coconut flour and baked into crispy coconut crusted eggplant medallions.

With the sales on eggplant lately, I'd purchased another one. Eggplant's a vegetable I struggle with, honestly. I've made some tasty dishes with it, but for every tasty dish I've shared, there's lots of flops behind the scenes. However, we've enjoyed the crispness of this coconut crusted eggplant. The coconut flour really gave the eggplant a tropical flair, and the seasonings gave the eggplant just the right amount of flavor. Then baking crisped it all up even more. Next time, I want to try using coconut shreds instead since I'm thinking it'll result in an even crispier coating. I also used the usual eggplant (not sure what kind they are), and I'm thinking maybe using something with a small diameter, like a Chinese eggplant might make this snack or side more fun. :)

What are your thoughts on eggplant - love it, tolerate it, hate it?

    1. We liked the bit of coconut flavor, but I'm thinking coconut shreds next time for a bit of texture. :)
