Goat’s Cheese and Eggplant (Aubergine) Bake

Keto Ketosis TheManCanCook Peter Andros Ketogenic Diet Egg 1

Eggplant contains 3g net carb per 100g. Need I say more..!!

Many keto’ers would be familiar with this versatile vegetable. Well known in the low carb scene; it’s a great basis for dips and moussakas alike.  This is one staple recipe to add to your weekday low-carb repertoire, you’ll find this dish often frequenting my kitchen bench!

The goats cheese adds an additional source of fats, as well as a crispy texture when grilled. It’s fairly simple to replace carbs in many common meals, often people would use potato or rice to accompany mince – here we’ve just substituted carbs with vegetables, and added an extra fat in there. Simple.

With a fast prep and bake time in the oven, my eggplant bake is a flavour blast won’t play havoc on your blood glucose, and leave you feeling full.

Enjoy, and keep up your keto consistency!
