This eggplant parmigiana is a healthy twist on a classic for when you want some Italian comfort food without the carbs. I keep it super simple with delicious fresh ingredients - grilled eggplant, a lovely marinara sauce with fresh basil, fresh mozzarella and of course freshly grated parmesan cheese. This is a perfect side for entertaining, or makes a great low carb, vegetarian main.

I started making this as something deliciously indulgent and Italian that was still low in carbs. I love taking it to a BBQ or potluck to make sure there's a healthier/low carb option - everyone always forgets the sides!

About Your Cook

Harriet, Cremorne

I have loved cooking since a very young age. My earliest memories of cooking are helping mum in the kitchen, stirring the mixing bowl and more! 

Weekends were often filled with baking and experimenting in the kitchen with my mum and sisters, poring over her giant recipe binder of newspaper clippings or flicking through cookbooks to choose something new and exciting to try. 

As I travelled Europe and Asia in my 20s, I loved trying new local foods then going home and working out how to recreate the recipes. I love sharing good food with friends and family and I believe it's the ultimate way to bring people together!
