Eggplant is well known for its beauty as well as its unique taste. It’s low in calories, with just 35 per cup. It contains no fat, and its high fiber content can help you feel full, making this nightshade a healthy addition to any diet. Instead of reaching for potato chips when you have a craving for a crispy treat, thin-sliced fried eggplant with panko provides a satisfying crunch with tons of flavor and less fat!
Love the flavors of classic eggplant Parmesan [PARMIGIANA] but looking for something a little lighter? Baking the eggplant in this dish is easier and much lower in fat than the traditional coating and frying. A simple pink sauce between layers of eggplant gives rich and creamy flavor without using so much cheese -- but don’t worry, there is still plenty of bubbling mozzarella to make this dish feel like you’re eating at your favorite Italian restaurant.
In some circles zucchini is kind of a hard sell, am I right? Today's recipe will change all of that. It's a take on the classic deep-fried zucchini, but much healthier, and (almost) as addictive. We all know nothing's truly as good as deep fried. But who wants to fry at home? This version is really, really good, and so much easier -- trust me. Coat sticks of zucchini with light breadcrumbs (panko) and savory Parmesan cheese, quickly bake them to crunchy perfection, and watch them disappear!
