Low Carb Eggplant Bites

These Low Carb Eggplant Bites are vegan, gluten-free and low carb. if you are craving for pizza but dreading the carbs, well these delicious treats are just right for you! I found myself craving for a gluten-free pizza but I didn't have all the ingredients to make my Mediterranean Pumpkin Pizza, and we had run out of store-bought  Daiya Pizza.

I decided to whip up this easy to prepare, Low Carb 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.

    Step 4 says:
    Place ingredients for almond cheese sauce in a high-speed blender and process until smooth and creamy.

    But the recipe does not indicate which ingredients are for this? Assuming from 2nd Almond flour then water, and the rest through the salt?
