Low Carb and Gluten Free Eggplant “Fries”

Since traditional potato fries are usually out when you’re on a low carb diet, I’m always looking for alternatives.  Though if I’m being honest I do occasionally swipe a couple from my son’s plate.  But since eating one or two really just leaves me wanting more, it’s not usually a good idea.

Enter these eggplant “fries.”  They satisfy my french fry craving on pretty much every level.  Crispy – check.  Salty – check.  Fun to dip – check!  Another added bonus is that they are very kid friendly so it’s a great way to sneak more veggies into your children’s (or husband’s!) diet.

Ingredients :

  • 2 large eggplant
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 1/2 cup olive oil for frying

Instructions :

  1. Peel the eggplant and cut into strips about 3/4 inch wide and 4 inches long to mimic fries.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the 2 eggs.
  3. In another medium bowl, combine the parmesan cheese, coconut flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper and parsley flakes.
  4. Start heating your oil in a medium saute pan.
  5. Soak the eggplant in the egg mixture for a minute or two and then transfer in small batches to the herb & parmesan coating.
  6. Once coated, cook in small batches in the hot oil, turning once to brown both sides. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any extra oil.
  7. Serve with the low carb marinara sauce of your choice for dipping.
