Be still my heart. Those aren’t french fries. They’re eggplant fries! As in, eggplant in french-fry form. Not only they’re healthier for you but they are also super delicious!
Now, I have to admit that you can’t have only these for dinner but you can have them as a side dish with your dinner.
Preparing: 10 Minutes / Cooking: 10 Minutes
Ingredients (6 servings)
2 large eggplant
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/2 cup olive oil for frying
1. Peel the eggplant and cut into strips about 3/4 inch wide and 4 inches long to mimic fries.
2. In a small bowl, beat the 2 eggs.
3. In another medium bowl, combine the parmesan cheese, coconut flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper and parsley flakes.
4. Start heating your oil in a medium saute pan.
5. Soak the eggplant in the egg mixture for a minute or two and then transfer in small batches to the herb & parmesan coating.
6. Once coated, cook in small batches in the hot oil, turning once to brown both sides. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any extra oil.
7. Serve with the low carb marinara sauce of your choice for dipping.
Tip: These can be made up to an hour ahead – to reheat just lay them out on a greased cookie sheet in a single layer and re-heat in the oven at 375 degrees F for 7-8 minutes just before serving.
