That cheesecake pancake stacker made me drool. It actually looks like real pancakes!

Cerise - Your eggplant looks yummy. I think your toppings would go nicely over roasted zucchini as well. I would probably leave out the marinara, since the rest of the items would make it delicious on its own.

TO EVERYONE...

I am an eggplant lover.
What is your favorite way to cook eggplant?

I like to bread mine with crush pork rinds/parmesan/herbs/egg and fry/brown until crispy. Then I layer it with cheese and marinara. Its so good.

I've also had it breaded/fried as a snack and dipped in spicy buttermilk ranch.

LC_Monkee, thanks. It was very very filling!

My favorite is eggplant torta. It's like an omelet. Grill the eggplant, then remove the peel, mash it, add cooked ground meet and egg, fry.

I minced garlic, ginger, chilli and onion (and a beaten egg) then mixed it through pork mince and seasoned with freshly ground salt/pepper then rolled into little balls. For the tomato sauce, I used 1/2 a tin of tomatoes which were seasoned with garlic and basil, 2 diced tomatoes, 1/2 red onion, handful of basil, minced garlic and chilli, simmered it all down till it was thick and added Worcestershire sauce, some Nandos peri-peri sauce,tsp of Cajun seasoning and a tsp cumin powder, then just let it simmer with 1/2 cup of thickened cream. Cooked the meatballs on the griddle and added it all together
It was really tasty

Actually I've got 2
SMOKY SPICED EGGPLANT
600g eggplants
1 red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, chopped
1" piece of ginger, chopped
1 green chilli, chopped
1/2 cup oil
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
2tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
3-4 tbsp coriander (cilantro) finely chopped
SERVES 4

Scorch the eggplants by holding them over a medium gas flame or heating them under a grill (broiler) Keep turning them until skin is blackened on both sides. Set aside until cool then peel off all the charred skin. Roughly chop the flesh
Combine the onion, garlic, chilli and ginger and process until chopped together but not forming a paste. Alternatively chop very finely with a knife and mix in a bowl
Heat the oil in a heavy, deep-based pan over a medium heat, add the onion mixture and cook until slightly browned (don't let it burn) Add all of the spices, salt and pepper and stir for 1 minute. Add the chopped tomato and simmer until the liquid has reduced. Put the eggplants in a pan and mash them with a wooden spoon, stirring around with the spices. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the eggplants are soft. Stir in the chopped coriander and season with salt, to taste.

If you want the other one let me know, its 'Spicy Eggplant' and the eggplants are kept intact if you're not fond of mushed ones

Cerise, thank you! It sounds delicious!

gingerfurball, I do eat the stuff I make but my DH eats probably 75% of the servings. I had noticed that I don't have much appetite and get full easily. To date I have lost 17 lbs.

It's all low carb, why do you think you wouldn't lose weight? I've lost half a stone eating this stuff in 2 weeks and that's not being really strict (I've had Atkins bars, vodka, coffee etc) I'm at my ideal weight now
Doesn't mean to lose weight you have to eat food that tastes bad or looks bad. I love every aspect of food - cooking it, eating it, shopping for it, talking about it and I strive for perfection in my dishes. That's what I love about Atkins, I can make delicious dishes and never feel deprived

I am doing very well. I only eat when hungry, stop when full, and freeze/refrigerate portions I'm not going to be able to finish. I also like to make smaller portions for fun, like yesterday's pizza bowl lunch.

You all should start your own low-carb business and ship prepared food to people. Easy money!

I would join for sure. Everything always looks so delicious.

Gina,
I am right there with ya. Not only have I not lost weight, I have actually gained. I hate to think that I need to go back to eating fat free to lose weight, but when I did that, I was able to maintain my weight very easily.
I switched to low carb after having blood work that came back telling me I had a high risk of heart disease thanks to years of fat free (HFCS laden) foods.

Is there a thread where Gina and I can go get advice?
(yes I have read the Atkins books)
I think my problem is portion size, but I have never had to watch portions and I am a grazer.
I am getting depressed even though I really like the food.

And all these recipes are AWESOME!

There are some many threads here that give advice. I can tell you one thing LC is very scientific. If you are eating clean this has to put you into ketosis...If you are in ketosis you are burning stored fat for energy. Check out the other threads and post exactly what you are eating...you will get lots of advice. Good luck to both of you.
