Gluten Free Slow Cooker Eggplant Parmesan

Regularly, I make it just four or five times each year, since… it’s a procedure. One that I don’t especially appreciate.

My conventional formula requires either preparing or singing the eggplant before it goes into the dish. There are hardly any things that I detest more than remaining over a hot oven singing.

I love my moderate cooker, so half a month back when he requested it, I began thinking – would it be conceivable to make Eggplant Parm that taken after my customary dish in my moderate cooker?

Make baked eggplant parmesan instead of lasagna to skip the unnecessary carbs and still enjoy all the cheesy goodness.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds eggplant

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk of choice

  • 1 1/2 cup gluten free breadcrumbs

  • 3 ounces vegetarian Parmesan cheese or vegan Parmesan

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning make sure it is gluten free

  • 4 cups marinara sauce use a low-sugar brand like Rao’s

  • 16 ounces mozzarella cheese sliced or shredded Daiya

  • fresh basil for topping

Directions

  • Peel eggplant and cut into 1/3 inch rounds. Layer in a colander, sprinkling each layer with salt. Allow to sit for 30 minutes and then pat dry. (If you aren’t a fan of salt you can rinse and pat.)
  • Spread 1/2 cup of sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Whisk together the eggs and milk in a shallow bowl. Stir together breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in a separate bowl. Dip eggplant in egg mixture and then in the breadcrumbs.
  • Layer 1/3 of the slices in the slow cooker. Top with 1 cup sauce and mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers two more times. Cook on low for eight hours.
  • If desired, top with fresh basil leaves.
