POP Nutrition: Elegant Eggplant And Ricotta Cheese Brown Rice Lasagna

HI guys,

As you already found out I am on a health quest. I also enjoy making high-fat high-calories dishes into healthy alternatives. So here is a recipe for a Elegant Eggplant And Ricotta Cheese Lasagna. Ricotta gives it a unique texture and fullness while brown rice makes it a much healthier alternative to while flour or wheat (if you have allergies).

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of brown rice lasagna
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 1 can unsalted tomatoes
  • 2 large eggplants
  • 1 large red onion
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • pepper
  • paprika
  • dried cilantro
  • basil
  • 16 ox fat free ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded quattro formaggio cheese
  • green onion for garnish

Cooking Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 22o C.
  2. Slice eggplant (thin) and onions, place on a cooking sheet, sprinkle with olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and bake for 10 min or until cooked. 
  3. Meanwhile, boil water and cook lasagne placing three pieces at a time in boiling water. When done take out and place on a towel to dry.
  4. In a blender mix tomatoes, spices, and ricotta, and baked onions (the one you baked with the eggplant) and blend until smooth.
  5. In a deep dish place lasagna sheets, layer eggplant, spinach, and 1/2 or ricotta and tomato mixture. Repeat. Last layer will be lasagna sheets. Sprinkle them with shredded quattro formaggio cheese.
  6. Bake for 30 min on 200 C. 

Enjoy.
