These are tasty little morsels that are very easy and are less clean up than the regular fried eggplant. I love these tossed on a salad.

We just had these for a midday snack. So good and easy to make. These will be repeated for sure. Next time I'll make a pasta sauce to go with it. Thank you

Extra fresh garlic!!! Plus I used zucchini another time!!! (Squeeze a little lemon juice over them I've been making these for years now!!! YUMMMMMMMMMMMM??)
