Ingredients

  • 13 13 eggplant
  • ½ ½ zucchini
  • ¼ cup 60 ml olive oil
  • ½ ½ lemon, the juicelemons, the juice
  • 5 oz. 150 g cheddar cheese
  • 10 10 black olives
  • 1 oz. 30 g almonds
  • ½ cup 125 ml mayonnaise or crème fraîche
  • 1 oz. 30 g leafy greens
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Slice eggplant and zucchini into half inch-thick slices lengthwise. Salt on both sides and let them sit for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450°F (225°C), or, even better, set oven to broil.
  3. Use paper towels or a clean kitchen towel to pat zucchini and eggplant until dry on surface.
  4. Place the slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush olive oil on top and season with pepper.
  5. Bake (or broil) for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on both sides, flipping once half way through. You can also fry the vegetables in a large skillet or cook on a grill.
  6. When done, place on a serving platter. Drizzle olive oil and freshly-squeezed lemon juice on top.
  7. Serve with cheese cubes, almonds, olives, mayonnaise or crème fraiche and leafy greens.

Tip!

Dry roast the almonds (in a 250°F oven for about an hour) for even more flavor. Stir warm nuts with almond oil and salt for a perfect finish.

    I love keto! I struggle with too much protein so this look amazing to me! I see carbs listed, however...what about fats and protein? Are they listed anywhere? I am a religious tracker and could take time to build the recipe on my app, but honestly lean towards things that don't require quite so much effort!

    Loved this one, decided to have a veggie day, I am not used to eating meat every day so this was a replacement for my midweek lunch (only 3rd day on the plan). Really filling, I thought the cheese was a bit too much so next time will have less. I didn't have almonds so I've used sunflower seeds instead. Hope this is ok. Not really feeling eating dinner, I just had some blueberries with a dolop of cream fresh sprinkled with hemp and sunflower seeds.
