Buckle your seat belts folks! Because today we are using eggplant. Yep, I said eggplant. And it is delicious! This would be a great low-carb option similar to lasagna.

Finding a good eggplant is step one.

Look at this lovely eggplant!

 

You want the eggplant to be smooth, no major bumps or soft spots. For this dish, you want the eggplant to be firm. Find one? Good, let’s get cooking!

 

Pair this dish with a good protein…I suggest grilled/baked chicken or turkey Italian sausage.

I love finding new ways  to make the same old vegetables, don’t you?! What are some of the ways you make your favorite vegetables ?
