Eggplant Parmesan Serves 2-3 This recipe is in celebration of the wonderful @cmoscato4 and the launch of her seriously cool website clubmoscato.com. Check it out while your eggplant parm is baking and support her causes and buy some swag! 2 large eggplant, sliced thinly into 1/2 inch rounds Salt, for preparing the eggplant 1 egg 1 cup almond flour 1 tsp salt 1 tsp pepper 1 tsp garlic powder 2 cups of your favorite tomato sauce (I used an organic tomato basil sauce) 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Oil to coat pan, about 4 Tbsp *Preparing the eggplant takes an extra 30 minutes to an hour and can be skipped if you're in a hurry. But I definitely recommend it as it draws out the bitterness of the eggplant.* Sprinkle salt over each of the eggplant slices. (Don't worry, they will be rinsed later!) Place the slices into a colander and let them sit there 'sweating' for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F/200 degrees C. Rinse the eggplant slices with water and pat dry. Whisk the egg in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Heat up about 2 Tbsp oil in a large pan on medium heat. Dip each eggplant slice in the whisked egg and then the flour mixture, coating both sides. Cook in the pan, flipping after about 2 minutes so that both sides are browned and crispy. Re-coat the pan with oil each time you cook a new batch of eggplant. Place cooked eggplant in a baking/casserole dish and pour pasta sauce over. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and bake for 10-15 minutes until the sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted. #eggplant #eggplantparm #italian #dinner #easydinner #healthydinners #eatclean #glutenfree #nutrition #nutritious #vegetarian
