    1 large eggplant, (1/4" to 1/2" slices)
    2 cup cottage cheese (2% fat) large curd is best.
    2 eggs
    2 tomatoes
    Season with:
    1 tsp Garlic powder
    Dash of Salt
    1 tsp Pepper
    1 tbs Chili powder
    2 tbs olive oil (for baking pan)
    Optional: 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella adds extra flavor and consistency.


Peel eggplant, salt and let drain at least 15 minutes. Brush 9 in. baking dish with olive oil. Combine eggs, cottage cheese, seasonings in bowl.

Place eggplant in baking dish, top with tomato slice, then spoon cheese mixture on top of each slice. Can also layer in lasagna fashion. Bake for 30-40 min until golden brown. Note that eggplant creates a good amount of water so be sure to cook until most liquid is gone.

3-4 pieces per serving. Enjoy
