Low-Carb Roasted Eggplant Marinara

Low-Carb Roasted Eggplant Marinara created by Ashley G.

Having been diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes, I have had to improvise some rather creative dinners. This was one I threw together one night on a whim, and it turned out great!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
  • Dice the two eggplants into approximately one inch cubes. (Peeling the eggplant first is a personal preference; I don't.) Toss the eggplant cubes with 2-4 Tbsp of olive oil; add salt and pepper to taste. Spread into a single layer on a baking sheet and pop into preheated oven. Roast until eggplant is tender and beginning to brown, 15-20 minutes.
  • When eggplant is done roasting, pull out of the oven and top with crushed red pepper (if using), tomato sauce, parmesan, and mozzarella cheese. Place back in oven for approximately 10-15 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and starting to brown slightly. Serve with salad.

    Found this recipe while looking for a low carb version of eggplant parmesan. Made the first batch following the recipe pretty closely except I used my own favorite homemade sauce, but it actually turned out too watery for the finished product. The flavor c ame out pretty good & even my hubs liked it. The amount of mozzarella seemed a bit excessive to me, but next time I make this dish, I plan to spread half of the mozzarella beneath the marinara and the other half above it.
