Who says “fries” have to be deep-fried potatoes? These raw eggplant “fries” are super simple and so delicious. A quick chop and  soak in the marinade and away you go! I made these in my dehydrator but you can certainly experiment with your oven. Just note if you really want them raw the food temperature needs to stay under […]
