Low Carb Eggplant Sticks

Eggplants are such a great non-starchy veggie, plus they have such a rich, meaty taste and they are just so versatile! I’ve been trying different recipes to use up my eggplant harvest and made these eggplant bites! They’re both flavourful and low in carbs.

I replaced breadcrumbs for almond flour and flax powder – the higher fibre, protein and healthy fats helps keep blood sugars in check. Here’s the recipe!

Instructions
  1. Slice the eggplant into thin slices. The thinner they are, the crispier they get!
  2. Toss the eggplant slices in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and 1-2 tsp of olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Prep the breading mixture in another bowl by adding almond flour, flax powder, grated parmesan, dried parsley, and garlic salt/your seasoning of choice.
  4. In another bowl beat one 1 egg, or 1/2 cup of egg whites and set aside.
  5. Take a few pieces of eggplant slices dip them into the egg batter and then into breading mix. Use a fork to help. Place the breaded eggplants on a baking tray or air fryer.
  6. Once all the eggplants are ready bake in the oven at 400 for 15-20 min. I used the air fryer and it was ready in about 15 min.
  7. Arrange eggplant slices on a plate and toss with fresh chopped parsley (optional but adds lots of flavour) and dip with your fave marinara sauce!
  8. Enjoy hot!
