Flourless Eggplant Parmesan

A Day in the Life Family Food Recipes Things We Love

I don’t know what has come over me lately, but for some reason, I have loved being in the kitchen and cooking. Is it a full moon out there or what?!

I’ve been looking at different healthy meals and snacks, like the turkey meatballs I made last week and the energy balls I made for pre or post workouts.

Then earlier last week, someone I work out with posted about a low carb eggplant parmesan that they made, and I thought it looked delicious.

Chicken parmesan has been a family favourite for years so I figured why not try something new? My kids can be quite picky, especially my oldest, so I wasn’t quite sure how eggplant would go over. But I figured, why not try? Worst case scenario is that I get to eat it all myself!

So I looked at a few different recipes online and tweaked them so that the recipe was lower in fat, higher in protein and less carbs.

I did this by using only 1 egg and the rest with egg whites. I removed the flour and used only Panko crumbs.

So higher protein with the egg whites, removed a lot of the fat content by not using whole eggs, and the only carbs were the sauce and panko.

It was filling and delicious as a meal on its own. And for the kids I put pasta on the side. I also made them as individual pieces but you can totally make this lasagna style too!

It really was one of the easiest recipes I have ever made. Prep was less than 20 minutes and cook time is about 40 minutes.

A great meal to serve for a family dinner or even a dinner party with friends.

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
