Meatless Mondays is a weekly feature which will showcase some of my hits and probably misses with living a meatless life. Many of you know I stopped eating meat about a year ago for personal reasons. While, I haven’t had any desire to go back to eating meat, it has been a struggle to find healthy foods to eat.
Everywhere you go, meat is the main dish. Since I was new to this lifestyle, it led me to eating unhealthy options. I’m on a path now to cook healthier options at home without meat. While going meatless is a personal choice for me, you can still save money by having one meatless meal a week.
Will you join me on this journey by preparing one meatless dish every week?
- 1 Eggplant
- 1 cup Freshly grated Parmesan or Romano Cheese (Of course, I like using my Ninja Chopper to grate mine easily and quickly! We’ve said GOODbye to the fake parmesan forever!)
- 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
- 1 1/2 cups Spaghetti or Marina Sauce
Slice eggplant 1/4″. I leave my eggplant unpeeled. Layer eggplant in 8.5″ x 11″ dish. Then layer half of the parmesan cheese, half the mozzarella, and half the sauce. Repeat. Sprinkle with additional parmesan cheese.
Cover and bake for 45 minutes at 375 degrees.
Serves 4 .
