    We’ve made these several times. After the 1st time, we peeled the eggplant. The recipe ingredients are super as is! Fantastic taste! You cannot eat just one! Thanks Claire!!

  2. Any oven alternative ?


    Is there a way to make this recipe in the oven if we don’t have a dehydrator? Looks so good! 🙂
