I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of Eggplant. Strange then that I when I stumbled upon this recipe http://www.vingle.net/posts/13053-Low-Fat-Eggplant-Parmesan-recipe-%E2%80%93-154-calories I felt compelled to try it out. It could be that this recipe is only 154 calories, or maybe its the cheese, whatever the reason I’m glad I made this as it is delicious. The eggplant doesn’t overpower the dish and the combination of garlic powder, tomato sauce and herbs are spot on. If you think you don’t like Eggplant, I suggest you try this recipe, it will be sure to change your mind. I also think this will be my next go to sauce for Pizza.
My variation from the original here are I used chicken stock powder, rather than Vegetable stock powder, I weighed my cheese – measurements below are as per my dish (and may have been a little generous but still stayed below 200 calories), and I removed the fresh garlic to simplify the sauce process, and added fresh lemon juice and fresh oregano to zing it up a bit.
