Lighter, Quicker Eggplant Parmesan

Active time: 8 minutes Total time: 20 minutes

This recipe incorporates everything you love about eggplant Parmesan but brings it together in a lower-calorie, lower-fat, much faster way. You still get tender, earthy eggplant, rich tomato sauce, gooey mozzarella, nutty Parmesan, and the crunch of toasted breadcrumbs.

Eggplant belongs to a class of antioxidants called “anthocyanins,” which refers to the antioxidants in the fruit or vegetable that give it a dark blue or purple color. Anthocyanins are anti-inflammatory and have been shown to improve glucose control and arthritis symptoms.
