Air Fryer Eggplant Parmesan

Posted by on Aug 2, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized

I received the gift that keeps on giving for Mother’s Day: an Air Fryer! This thing is practically magical. I have been making french fries, crunchy veggies, and even crispy chicken nuggets for my son who can’t have grains…it’s the best! It has essentially replaced our toaster oven and I think we all like it better…Quick plug: it’s from Costco and you can find it HERE.

This week I took on a family favorite: Eggplant Parmesan because it’s eggplant season! Top it with Mama Jess Garden Good Organic Pasta Sauce and you have a no sugar added, veggie-packed, low carb meal!

Xoxo, Jess and the Mamas at Mama Jess
