2 large brinjals
¼ C (60 ml) oil olive
¼ C (60 ml) balsamic vinegar
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp (5 ml) salt sea
1 tsp (5 ml) brown sugar
1 tsp (5 ml) pepper black crushed
1 tsp (5 ml) coriander seeds, toasted and crushed
½ tsp (2.5 ml) chilli flakes (optional)

Wash and cut the brinjals in half lengthways, then place flesh side down on a chopping board and slice lengthways again into even 3 mm slices. A mandolin would be best for even slices.

In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, balsamic, garlic, salt and sugar and stir well. Toss the eggplant slices in the spiced marinade and set aside for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven or a dehydrator to 65 °C.

After 2 hours, place the slices on a baking tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle with cracked pepper, chilli flakes and coriander seeds.

Place in the oven or dehydrator for 12 hours at 65 °C.
