Low Carb Eggplant Bites

These Low Carb Eggplant Bites are vegan, gluten-free, and low carb. if you are craving pizza but dreading the carbs, well these delicious treats are just right for you! I found myself craving a gluten-free pizza but I didn’t have all the ingredients, so I decided to use eggplant to make an alternative to my Mediterranean Pumpkin Pizza. 

Eggplant Pizza Bites Ingredients

I decided to whip up these easily prepared Eggplant Bites and they were so delicious. I added my favorite toppings, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and a delicious and creamy almond sauce. For the breading, I used seasoned almond flour as the base after dipping the eggplant slices in a mixture of vegan mayo and almond milk. if you don’t have vegan mayo almond milk mixed in a little cornstarch is fine.

Eggplant -make sure your eggplant has shiny smooth skin with a dark purple color, without bruises, discoloration, or dents.

Breading – For the breading, I used seasoned almond flour as the base for the dry breading, but to make sure the breading sticks to the eggplant slices, I first made a mixture of Vegan Mayo and unsweetened almond milk, You can make your own Almond Flour, or purchase it from the health food store. To the almond flour, add nutritional yeast flakes, onion powder, Italian seasoning garlic powder, ground paprika, and salt. These ingredients are sold in most major supermarkets and health food stores.

Almond Cheese Sauce – for the cheese sauce, I combine almond flour in the blender with water, nutritional yeast flakes, lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.

Toppings – I used simple Mediterranean toppings of grape tomatoes, artichokes, and fresh basil leaves.
