Keto Vegetarian Eggplant Parmesan / Parma / Parmy

Keto Vegetarian Eggplant Parmesan / Parma / Parmy

That old debate – is it a parma? Or a parmy? Or if you’re American, a parmesan? Where I’m from this a parma – but not your usual one. This Keto Vegetarian Eggplant Parmesan is the perfect vegetarian dish if you’re wanting to eat a bit less meat and bit more veg.

I used tasty cheese for this version, but it would be just as delicious with mozzarella.

There seems to be a shortage of quality keto vegetarian recipes, and when I found some cheap eggplants recently I spent many days googling Keto Vegetarian Eggplant without finding anything that grabbed my attention!

The key to get this dish really melt in the mouth is to ensure the eggplants are cooked all the way through and almost falling apart. They absorb the flavour of the cheese and tomato paste and become a rich and satisfying meal, even for meat eaters.

My carnivore husband rated them “not bad for an eggplant dish”.. when it comes to creating a parma without chicken, this Keto Vegetarian Eggplan Parmesan tastes just as good to me!

It’s not as much work as you might think – the majority of the time is baking the eggplant. I like to serve this with baby spinach leaves drizzled with olive oil.
