EatingWell’s Eggplant Parmesan
Here we bake breaded eggplant for crispy results with fewer calories to boot. This makeover of the classic recipe was originally developed by our Test Kitchen in 1995 and got an update in 2020 for our 30th anniversary issue…………………

Eggplant Tortilla Casserole
This layered casserole is inspired by classic cheese enchiladas, minus the fuss of rolling and stuffing individual tortillas. You’d never guess that within this comforting Tex-Mex casserole hides a layer of thinly sliced eggplant. The thin slices become tender when roasted and add a subtle savory note………………

Italian-Style Stuffed Eggplant
Two favorite Italian dishes–lasagna and eggplant Parm–are rolled into one in this stuffed vegetable recipe………………

Baba Ghannouj (Eggplant Dip)
Low-carb and requiring just seven simple ingredients, this traditional Middle Eastern dip is perfect for combining with pita bread, crackers or crudités for a flavor combination that can’t be beat.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 13 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes

1 large eggplant
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions
Yield: 2 1/3 cups
Serving size: 1/3 cup

1 – Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut eggplant in half lengthwise. Place it on a baking sheet with cut sides down. Bake in hot oven for approximately 20 minutes, until skin is dark and eggplant is soft and cooked through when pierced with a fork. Meanwhile, place garlic in a small mixing bowl; add tahini and lemon juice. When eggplant is done, remove from oven and run cold water over eggplant halves for one minute. Drain water and cool slightly. Remove skin (it will peel back easily). Dice the eggplant and place it in bowl with tahini mixture. Mash the eggplant with the other ingredients to make a lumpy dip. Sprinkle with parsley and cayenne pepper, and drizzle the olive oil over the top of the sauce. Chill until serving time. Serve with pita triangles.

Easy Eggplant Stir-Fry
This eggplant stir-fry is easy to make. We call for long and tender Japanese eggplant, but regular eggplant will work well too, cut into 1-inch pieces. Jalapeño peppers can vary from mild to very spicy. If you need to cut the heat, opt for small sweet peppers in their place……………………………

Low-Carb Eggplant Pizzas
These eggplant pizzas have all the classic flavors of a real pizza without all the carbs. Opt for spicy Italian sausage if you like the heat! Serve these mini pizzas with a green salad on the side to complete the meal………………………………….

Open-Face Eggplant Parmesan Sandwiches
This cheeseburger and eggplant Parm fusion recipe is a winning combination. Breaded eggplant slices are topped with marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and a delicious grilled lean beef burger–it’s American classic meets Italian restaurant favorite! To make it a complete meal, serve with spaghetti with a side of steamed vegetables…………………………..

Healthy Vegetarian BBQ and Grilling Recipes
Find healthy, delicious grilled vegetarian BBQ recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Summer Vegetable Gnocchi Salad
This riff on pasta salad is best served warm while the gnocchi are nice and tender. Plus, the grilled veggies taste extra-good fresh off the fire in this easy gnocchi recipe………………………..

Grilled Eggplant and Tomatoes with Polenta
The sweet flavor and plump flesh of ripe tomatoes are a natural fit with the silky texture that eggplant gets from grilling. You can get the same effect by broiling the eggplant for about 4 minutes per side. Serve over creamy polenta for an easy healthy dinner, or swap in whole-wheat pasta for the polenta for a faster weeknight supper…………………………………….

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Pesto Butter
If Mexican street corn took a trip to Genoa, it might come back slathered in pesto butter like this grilled corn on the cob recipe. This Italian flair works because the flavors of basil and Parmesan have a natural affinity with corn…………………………………….

Healthy Bison Recipes

Indian-Spiced Stuffed Eggplant
Lots of Indian spices flavor these stuffed eggplants. They can be a complete meal, but if you are feeling extra energetic, make this dish part of a multicourse Indian feast along with curried vegetables, basmati rice, yogurt salad and some Indian breads. As a side dish, plan on one-quarter of an eggplant per person………………………………..

Mexican Bison Stew
Mexican cooks are great at turning tough chunks of meat into delicious and tender stews. This one, which uses tougher cuts of bison, such as chuck or brisket, is flavored with chili powder, cumin and tequila. Serve with warm tortillas……………………………

Red Curry Bison Short Ribs with Baby Bok Choy
Thai red curry paste, garlic, ginger, cilantro and fish sauce flavor the coconut-infused broth for these braised bison short ribs. A tough cut of meat, the short ribs become meltingly tender when cooked slowly over low heat. Bison short ribs, unlike beef short ribs, are quite lean and therefore can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet. If you have time, prepare this dish through Step 2 a day ahead–the flavor of the sauce and tenderness of the meat get even better overnight. Serve with bowls of jasmine rice…………………………………

Healthy Fall Recipes
Find healthy, delicious fall recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Gnocchi with Bacon and Creamy Pumpkin Sauce
Get into the fall spirit with this one-pan gnocchi with a creamy pumpkin sauce. Some pumpkin and other squash sauces can be cloyingly sweet, but not this one—it’s savory all the way, thanks to the bacon, garlic and thyme. Instead of being boiled, a package of store-bought gnocchi—one of our favorite convenience products—is browned and crisped in a little bit of bacon fat. Then the sauce (made with canned pumpkin—another great convenience product) is prepared right in that same pan, so cleanup is minimal too. Serve with a simple green salad for an easy dinner that comes together in 30 minutes……………………

Southwestern Sweet Potato Stew
This hearty Southwestern-inspired stew may take a while in your slow cooker, but it’s so worth it! Full of sweet potatoes, black beans, and hominy, it will satisfy your tastebuds and keep you full for hours………………………

Italian-Style Stuffed Eggplant
Two favorite Italian dishes—lasagna and eggplant Parm—are rolled into one in this stuffed vegetable recipe…………………..
