Lately I have been getting lots of questions about how to make traditional recipes low carb. I have a sneaking suspicion this is due to the fact that summer is right around the corner and cutting carbs can be a quick way to shed some unwanted pounds or breakthrough a weight loss plateau. So although this recipe isn’t an exact lower carb version of a traditional dish, it is a lower carb twist on a traditional Eggplant Parmesan. Since we are eliminating both the breading and traditional pasta side dish, I usually look to add a lean protein, in this case, 95% lean ground beef. Chicken would also be delicious. From there, I like to use a low sugar marinara (diced tomatoes would also work) and use the eggplant as my cooking vessel instead of making traditional eggplant cutlets. The resulting dish is low in carbs, cheesy, and incredibly filling. It also freezes great and can be made ahead for a quick weeknight meal.
