Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant, sliced into very thin rounds
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • juice of ¼ lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • ¼ cup pomegranate arils

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Arrange eggplant slices onto rimmed baking sheets in a single layer. Drizzle olive oil over both sides of the slices; season salt and pepper.
  3. Roast in preheated oven until golden brown and crispy, 30 to 40 minutes.
  4. While the eggplant roasts mix the ricotta cheese, olive oil, vinegar, lemon, and garlic together in a bowl; season with salt pepper. Top ricotta dip with pomegranate arils.
  5. Serve eggplant chips warm or cool with ricotta dip.
Mealthy tip:

Try Greek-style yogurt in place of the ricotta cheese for a slightly different version of the dip. Pomegranate arils can be purchased in the refrigerated area of the produce section, or you can buy a whole pomegranate and remove them yourself.

I've made eggplant fries but never eggplant chips, until now! These were really good, and they went great with Greek yogurt. Now I'm thinking of all the different ways I can season these. So delicious!

These chips got me to like eggplant. It's a delicious alternative to potato chips and really liked the sweet-tartness from the pomegranate with the ricotta chese. Great to serve for a get-together.
