Eggplant Gina takes only a few minutes to prepare and then you bake and wait. Easy peasy recipe that tastes amazing. Impress your friends with this scrumptious meal.
Eggplant Gina is a layered, baked dish that takes just a few minutes to prepare. Then relax while it bakes. It is my favorite way to eat eggplant, except maybe as a dip (Baba Ghanooj). The recipe is easy, tasty, and good for you. I use my own Homemade Red Sauce/Spaghetti Sauce with it.
How can anything be good for you if it tastes good?
Start with fresh veggies, don’t use too much fat, and eat a reasonable portion. This Eggplant Gina recipe comes from the book Reversing Diabetes by Julian Whitaker, MD. Dr. Whitaker makes a good case for eating better to change your health outcomes. It worked for me! Read more about How I Healed Myself With Food.
Dr. Whitaker says this recipe feeds two, but it’s four servings for me, so I provided the nutrition for both servings. I know you’re gonna wanna eat this.
