Ingredients

  • Cooking spray, for the baking dish
  • 1 large eggplant
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup almond milk, such as So Delicious
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 Cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Slice the eggplant in half lengthwise, then lay the flat portion of the eggplant on the work surface and slice each half into 8 fry-like shapes using a sharp knife. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Add the eggplant fries and toss gently to coat.

Place the coated eggplant fries in the baking dish and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 3 minutes. Enjoy.

Lemon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Lemon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
