As my husband Randy continues to harvest his veggie garden, we have been in the possesion of some mighty fine eggplants! Look at their deep natural coloring....georgeous!
So naturally, I (automatically) began to make tray after tray of Eggplant Parmesan.... a yummy vegetarian entree (In honor of my friends Elise & Hilliary). Nevertheless, I cannot claim that my recipe was very low carb. However, low-carb IS a constant goal of mine. And who isnt working on their waistline, right?
Well, low and behold, my friend "Miss Adventures" was simultaneously concocting a LOW CARB Eggplant Parmesan recipe! Instead of bread crumbs, she substituted Almond Meal/Flour. I immediately ran out to find some, and thankfully it was available at my everyday grocer, Shop Rite!
That evening I diligently worked to prepare this low carb eggplant parmesan. My father in law Jim, (one of my best fans/critics) came over to join us for dinner. And whadda ya know, it was a home run! 5 out of 5 loved the taste AND didn't notice the difference between the almond meal and the usual bread crumbs. Please check out the recipe at:
Thanks Miss Adventures!
The almond meal I bought was a tad bit pricey, but well worth it. With a little research you may find an less expensive brand, or even figure a way to make your own! Have fun!! MANGIA!
