Easy Eggplant Parmesan, bread stick, raw veggies
Here is a link to the recipe.
Someone here at sparkpeople mentioned the documentary Forks Over Knives. DH and I watched it and have decided to try to incorporate more vegetarian meals. Well he decided to go 100% whole food, plant-based tomorrow. But since I'm the one who feeds us (including the two 8 year olds) I figured we could try a few meatless meals and keep the ones we like.
The nutrition information provided for the recipe claims 311 calories for 1/4 of the recipe. I probably at 1/6 of the recipe and used 2% milk cheese. I feel like what I ate was much less than 311 calories. IF you would like, you can track each of the elements of the recipe separately. I served it on whole wheat spaghetti. A bread stick and some fresh veggies finish off meal.
Was it kid friendly?
Meh. They ate it slowly but surely. Next time, I will put more sauce. I think that will help the kid friendliness.
Was it easy?
Absolutely! This version of eggplant parm doesn't bread and fry the eggplant. Super easy and less calories too!
ETA: The leftovers made an awesome sandwich!!
