My dear friend Anita has a very green thumb and has a fantastic garden practically year round, which is a thing here in Arizona. She gave us some beautiful purple eggplant out of it recently.
I don't have a lot of experience with eggplant, but I knew that it pretty much takes of the flavor or whatever it is cooked with.
I thought about using it to replace noodles in lasagna. But, I didn't know if I had to seed it or what! Here are a couple of things I learned about it as I studied it out:
My husband and I watched a couple of YouTube videos about cooking eggplant and I saw a really delicious looking recipe for Eggplant Parmesan. So, that gave me a different perspective about the Lasagna idea and I decided to do a mash-up of Eggplant Parmesan with Lasagna. It worked out very well and tastes wonderful. Here is how I did it. First make the sauce, then work on the eggplant.
Now, here is the real recipe:
If you haven't tried cooking with eggplant, I would highly recommend it! This recipe works great for a low-carb diet. I think you could even do away with the bread crumbs if you would like. Have you ever tried it? Drop us a comment below!
i have cooked eggplant by slicing i/2 think slices, spraying them with olive oil, giving them a shake of kosher salt and then running them under the broiler till they start to brown. The slices are delicious. I've used them in eggplant parmesan. I love your idea of eggplant lasagna. Will try soon--my vegetarian daughter and family are coming for a visit i a few weeks..

I quit frying the eggplant years ago because it always seemed to end up way too oily so I began baking it. Once its turning soft, I then add sauce and cheese before I finish baking it. I find its much better this way.
