Cook Time 20 – 25 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 3 egg whites (about 1/3 cup), beaten
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 8-ounce cans no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 2 Campari tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons fresh Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut eggplant lengthwise into 1/4-inch strips. Combine wheat flour, oregano, and basil. Dredge eggplant in egg whites, then the flour-spices mixture. Bake eggplant strips on a large oiled tray for 10 to 15 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  3. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Heat olive oil in a saucepan on medium low, add garlic and onion, and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and tomatoes. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Reduce oven to 350°F. Coat the bottom of a baking dish or cast-iron skillet with sauce. Arrange eggplant strips, cheese, and sauce in layers, finishing with cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
