While these chips taste like a pizza, they contain a fraction of the calories and are also gluten-free, thanks to the eggplant. A rich source of vitamins C, K and B-6, eggplants can help lower cholesterol and boost heart health. Remember to salt the eggplant slices before baking: This helps to draw out the moisture that would otherwise result in soggy chips.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 5

  • 8 cups Japanese Eggplant
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 7 oz Hunt's (low Sodium) Tomatoes Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Low Fat Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper Red Crushed

DIRECTIONS

1 Preheat oven to 450 Fahrenheit.
2 Use a mandolin to slice the eggplant on a slight bias at 1/8- to 1/16-inch thick and lay slices out on a baking rack over a sheet pan.
3 Scatter salt evenly over the eggplant slices and let sit 5 minutes. Flip slices, scatter salt over the top, let sit 5 minutes, then season with freshly ground pepper and place in the oven for 50 minutes.
4 Lower heat to 250° and cook another 15 minutes then check. If you can’t pick a chip up without it drooping, cook another 15 minutes.
5 In a small pot, simmer tomato sauce on low heat.
6 Remove chips from the oven, flip over on rack then place a small pinch of cheese on each. Replace in the oven for 5 minutes.
7 Drop about a ¼ to ⅛ teaspoon of hot tomato sauce on top of the cheese on each chip. If you like, use a pastry brush to spread the sauce over the cheese.
8 Sprinkle crushed red pepper over all the chips and serve.
