  • Prep time: 16 Minutes


  • 1 medium eggplant (about 1 pound), trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Preheat oven to 450°.

Cut eggplant lengthwise into 8 (1/4-inch-thick) slices.

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Place eggplant slices on pan; brush slices with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until tender; cover and keep warm.
