  • Cooking spray (I use avocado oil)
  • 1 large eggplant (1 lb.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray.
  • Slice the unpeeled eggplant into 1/2-inch rounds, discarding the ends. Season the eggplant slices with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • In a small baking dish, whisk the egg with a tablespoon of water. In another baking dish (I used a 8X11-inch dish), add the almond meal.
  • Dip each eggplant round in the egg, then dredge in the almond meal. Arrange the coated eggplant slices on the prepared baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray.
  • Bake the eggplant until tender, about 20 minutes per side.
  • Remove the eggplants from the oven, but keep the oven on. Top each eggplant with marinara sauce, then top with mozzarella and finally with Parmesan.
  • Return the baking sheet to the oven. Bake the eggplant until cheese is melted, about 5 more minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
