Ingredients

  • 13 13 eggplant
  • ½ ½ zucchini
  • ¼ cup 60 ml olive oil
  • ½ ½ lemon, the juice
  • 5 oz. 150 g (325 ml) cheddar cheese
  • 10 10 black olives
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp 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!
