Amazing, fluffy, delicious and healthy. I love eggplant and wanted to see if it would work in a slice. The results were fantastic.

Like my one pan zucchini slice, I cooked it in a high sided frypan to ensure it is versatile enough to make when we go camping.

Serve for brunch, lunch or as a tasty snack. It is great for lunch boxes. It is gluten, lactose free and can be made vegetarian and low FODMAP.
