Cook time: 8 minutes
1 medium eggplant
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Preheat oven to broil.
Slice eggplant into 1/2 inch thick slices.
Once oven is up to broil, preheat a pan for 3 minutes.
Remove pan and drizzle oil. Lay out slices in one layer, close together avoiding overlap. Sprinkle on seasoning on both sides. Spread out slices so there is even spacing.
Broil for 5 minutes or until browned. Flip slices and rotate pan for another 3 minutes or until brown. Don’t take it out too soon, getting it to the right doneness is key.
