Why Baked Eggplant Parmesan Instead of Fried?
It is simple. It is easier to make eggplant Parm that way. This vegetarian meal required only 15 minutes of prep. The oven does the work for an easy, kid friendly, weeknight meal.
Eggplant Parmesan is one of Genny’s recipe’s. She has been coming up with a lot of good ones recently, but I haven’t had luck at getting her on camera.
That is a shame as she is looking pretty good.
She makes this pretty regular as a part of her healthy eating campaign.
Because my wife likes this recipe so much, she made me plant a lot of eggplant in the garden this year.
She grew the one in the recipe. She likes this one, but the boy likes her kale chip recipe better.
