eggplant lasagna...

i caught an episode of the VICTORY GARDEN on PBS yesterday, as i was channel surfing. The chef made an eggplant lasagna. he said he was using eggplant slices to replace the higher carb pasta noodles, which was all refined flour (i guess he never heard of Dreamfields)He also mentioned that fat was not the enemy it has been touted to be, just the type of fats. In any event, it looked great. it so so nice when low(er)carb is vindicated from time to time. I am sure, those of u with computers can access his recipe on the net. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

I've made a version of this. It's very good, although time consuming to make. The eggplant needs to be cut pretty thin. I coated mine with evoo and put them in the oven before putting it all together. (my recipe was a little different, I used meat sauce).

I use thin, dry zucchini strips for my noodles. Dreamsfield is a good product me for during maintenance--but it seemed to kind of stall my weight loss in the past so I'm not using it yet. The veggies are a much better choice for people like me.

I adore fried eggplant and cauliflower alone as well--with a touch of salt.

That receipe is one of my favorites. I make it sometimes with ground meat sauce or sausage, very filling and my whole family loves it too!

Love eggplant! I make eggplant parmigiana by dipping slices in egg and coating w/parmesan, then frying in evoo. Then bake w/mozzarella and a fave sauce.

When the recipe says to grill the eggplant, do they mean on an outdoor grill? I bet that would give it a nice flavor.

Printed this as I love eggplant. I think a meat layer and maybe a ricotta layer with it sounds good. I will take others advice and slice thin, then roast a bit first. Boy, this sounds good. Thanks!

I made a version of this awhile back. I just sliced the eggplant thin and tried to remove a lot of the moisture from it and then roasted the slices. Then I made it just like my regular lasagna. Well worth it, a definite recipe that I will make often. Very filling.

I have an indoor grill pan that covers two burners. (gas stove)

You can grill on it either on stove or in oven.

It does a fine job. Jay used the mandoline to slice the
eggplant very thin. I just used olive oil, s and p and put
them on the grill pan and into a hot oven. What a good
job it does. I do meatballs on the grill in the oven.

I bought a cheap one at WalMart a few years back and it
was history in less than six months. Flaking of the non-stick
stuff. This time I bought an All Clad and it's worth every nickle
I spent and probably last me for many years to come.

outdoor grilling is awesome...but suicidal...

i live on the 7th floor and no terrace. The man on Victory Garden happened to be inside at the time, but outdoor grilling is always the best. Love & Profits:FLAT-ERIN GO BRAGH-FERENGHI

Trader Joe's has frozen eggplant and zucchini strips that we grill in a pan with some EVOO and use in place of lasagna noodles. I don't even miss them.

If you like your eggplant "breaded" dip in buttermilk and plain protein powder seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder and fry in a little evoo before you put it in your casserole dish...

For those who live in Texas... Central Market carries frozen grilled eggplant (as well as frozen grilled squash and frozen grilled zucchini). The bags say HEB brand, so they HEB stores very well may also carry them.
