Do you love eggplant parmesan but hate the fuss of making it? If so, you are going to adore this recipe for skillet eggplant parmesan. It’s fast, easy and lower in calories than the breaded and fried version we all know and love. TikTok content creator @dr.rachelpaul shares her marvelous skillet recipe with us and we can’t wait to try it!

This easy, low-calorie, eggplant parmesan is the recipe you've been looking for!

Our mouths are literally watering. This recipe is far easier than any eggplant recipe we’ve made before. In a cast-iron skillet, she cooks down the un-breaded diced eggplant. Perfect, that’s so easy! Once that’s cooked, she adds a crushed tomatoes. After the tomatoes are stirred in, she sprinkles on a healthy dose of both grated and shredded parmesan cheese. Off to the broiler it goes, and when it emerges, you have a beautifully browned cheesy eggplant parmesan to devour. Yes!

Most of the audience was ready to give this recipe a taste, and some were voicing concerns about nutrition. Viewer @glowinginsane commented, “I love the idea. I will be trying this recipe out!” Viewer @Jennifer noted, “No protein, you’re gonna be hungry in an hour.” But the recipe’s creator @dr.rachelpaul set our minds at ease. “Dairy is a complete filling protein! There's 22 gm of protein per serving in this meal.” That’s wonderful news! Viewer @roadtripSC23 suggested, “add ground beef if you’re not vegetarian.” That’s a nice idea, too.

We are thrilled to have this easy and lower calorie version of eggplant Parmesan in our recipe box. With all the rich foods we’ve been enjoying this fall, we welcome this healthy meal with open arms.
