Recipe Ingredients for Eggplant bacon -V B+

1 large eggplant, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 dried chipotle pepper, soaked at least 2 hours
1/2 cup water, from soaking the chipotle peppers
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons tamari
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 pinch black pepper
1 pinch cayenne

Recipe Directions for Eggplant bacon -V B+

  1. To make the thin sheets of eggplant I used a horizontal peeler.

  2. Once you have sliced your eggplant, sprinkle it with the sea salt and allow to sit for 1-2 hours.

  3. In the mean time, blend the other ingredients in the liquid container of your blender.

  4. Layer your eggplant sheets between paper or cloth tea towels and press out excess moisture.

  5. Submerge the squeezed eggplant in the marinade. I put them in a baggie and purged as much air as possible (as I would with any marinade). Marinate 30-45 minutes.

  6. Carefully lay out the eggplant sheets onto your dehydrator trays and dehydrate until crispy (24 ? 48 hours).

  7. Yields 15 ? 20 bacon pieces. 1 serving = 2 pieces.
