Okay, you’re in for a REAL treat with this recipe! A friend of mine passed this along and I could have never guessed how good it was going to taste. They are also super filling and so you don’t really need any sides, it can be an entire meal in itself! You’ll be happy to know that I tested these out on my father-in-law who is not a fan of vegetables and he went back for thirds. Bottom line, you don’t even need to tell people that they’re healthy.

####Ariel’s Eggplant Parmesan
Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 30-40 minutes | Serves: 4
3-4 eggplants, cut into ¼-½” thick rounds<br>
1-1½ cups Parmesan cheese, the powdery grated kind<br>
1-1½ cups almond flour<br>
2-3 pastured eggs, whisked<br>
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste<br>
1-1½ cups marinara sauce, per person<br>
Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving<br>
1.) Preheat the oven to 400° F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and spray them with coconut oil spray. Whisk two eggs and pour onto a large plate. On another large plate, mix the almond flour, Parmesan, salt and pepper.
2.) Take a slice of eggplant and dip it in the egg, then dredge both sides of it in the Parmesan mixture. Place on the baking sheet and continue with the rest of the slices. Bake until golden brown on both sides, about 30-40 minutes. While they are in the oven, heat or make the marinara sauce. Serve on top of the eggplant slices and serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and a salad, if desired.
Feel great and remember to enjoy your health!
