Sliced Eggplant Patties ( Varagheh Badenjan )

Sliced Eggplant Patties ( Varagheh Badenjan )

This this is a perfect choice for eggplant lovers, vegetarian and also a good diet recipe. Everyone knows that eggplant sucks up so much oil but I give you a very good tip to control it. In this recipe you need to slice the eggplant like circles to half inch thickness. Salt them and wring them out after 20 minutes. Grilling is the best way to cook them with a minimum amount of oil. Eggplant still is in the list of low carb diet but of course has more carbohydrate and sugar compare to green vegetables, but there is some days in diet that you can pass the limit a little bit, like this food. You can have a whole egg mean with yoke every two days so this recipe has. My vegetarian friend love this patty.
