Baked Eggplant Sandwich

 

Another dope recipe, this sandwich is simple and full of flavor. Eggplant is always cool to work with because it’s flexible and can be used in so many ways. Full of benefits ranging from aiding in digestion to helping to improve brain function, it’s not a bad food to experiment with at all! It soaks up flavor really well and can be used to give your dishes texture. You can pair this sandwich with whatever you want, I chose to go with sweet potato fries.
