Fried Eggplant Slices on plateI never really tried eggplants, so a great way to introduce eggplants to the family is by frying them! You can never go wrong with fried. This was an inexpensive snack/side dish. You can cut the slices into smaller pieces if you have more people to feed but it was just easier to fry in slices.

Eggplant is .77 at Sprouts. The rest of the ingredients we already had at home. This was really inexpensive to make and one eggplant could make a lot if cut in thinner pieces.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 3-4 people


  • 1 eggplant
  • Dash of salt
  • flour
  • 1 egg
  • 5 oz cassava flour
  • 2 Tbsp tapioca starch
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 5 oz water
