Delicious Eggplant Parmesan
This healthy eggplant parmesan is a low calorie but delicious alternative to traditional eggplant parmesan.
Wash and slice the eggplant in about 10 slices. In a small bowl beat the egg with the garlic powder and salt. On a plate or paper towel combine 2/3 of the parmesan cheese and the panko breadcrumbs.
Dip a slice of eggplant into the egg mixture and then coat both sides with the panko / parmesan mixture. Place the coated eggplant on a baking sheet with olive oil lightly brushed or sprayed onto the service. Repeat.Tip 1: I place a bit more of the breadcrumb mixture on top of each piece prior to baking.Tip 2: I use parchment paper, which allows for even less oil and easy clean-up.
Why use Panko? Panko breadcrumbs give food a light, crispy texture without the need for oil or frying.
Bake the coated eggplant in a 375° oven for about 40-45 minutes or until the outside is golden brown and the inside is soft.
Remove the tray from the oven and turn on your oven’s broiler.
Next, spoon 1 tablespoon of sauce onto each piece and then evenly sprinkle the remainder of the parmesan cheese on each piece.
Place the tray under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes until the cheese is bubbly.
