Great Grain-Free Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

Eggplant parmesan breaded in coconut flour with healthy grain free sauce!
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4-6
  • 2-3 medium sized eggplants
  • salt
  • about ½ cup coconut flour (or almond flour)
  • ⅓ cup arrowroot powder (can use more coconut if you don’t have this)
  • garlic, salt, pepper and basil leaf
  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1 TBSP heavy cream (optional)
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) of pasta sauce (check ingredients!)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • tallow, lard or coconut oil
  1. About an hour before preparing, peel eggplant and slice into ¼ to ½ inch slices. Place eggplant in strainer and sprinkle heavily with salt. Let sit for 45 mins to 1 hour. This sweats the eggplant and makes it much less bitter. Rinse well with water and pat dry
  2. Put lard, tallow or coconut oil (about 1-2 cups) in a large skillet and turn on medium heat.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  4. Mix coconut flour, arrowroot, 2 T parmesan and spices in large bowl or on a large plate
  5. Beat eggs with heavy cream, if using
  6. Dip eggplant in egg mixture, then in coconut flour mixture and place in hot oil in skillet
  7. Cook approximately 4 minutes per side until browned
  8. As eggplant is finished, place in a 13×9 baking dish
  9. Pour pasta sauce over the eggplant and then top with parmesan and mozzarella, if desired
  10. Heat in oven until cheese is melted and sauce is heated.
