If you know me, you’ll know that I have barely much time to cook. After a long day’s work and my usual end-of-day stop at the gym, I can *only* execute simple recipes. I have a rule: time I spend directly on dinner on weekdays has to be done within 30 minutes. Hard and fast. No but’s.

Eggplant Parmesan
Three ingredients only required!

Here’s one three ingredient meal that’s so yum: eggplant parmesan.


  • Eggplant or brinjal (3-4 for a whole casserole dish)
  • Extra Virgin (Cold Pressed) Olive Oil
  • Gluten-free marinara (tomato pasta) sauce
  • Parmesan cheese

Cut up a bunch of eggplant, locally known as brinjal. You can add zucchini, mushroom or any other vegetable you have on hand if you wish. Put in baking dish, e.g. a pyrex casserole one. Pour about 5 tablespoons of olive oil and a bottle of gluten-free pasta sauce atop. Check labels for gluten-free-ness of pasta sauces. Muir Glen makes a great organic, gluten-free kind. Layer with a bunch of parmesan cheese. Bake in oven for approximately 20 minutes or to your liking.

Done and done. And delicious. 🙂
