Requiring little ingredients yet appearing as they packed a flavorful punch, I was intrigued to try out her recipe. Considering how getting in all recommended vegetable servings per day can seem extremely tasking and/or unsatisfying....I wanted to try this recipe out and report back to you all!
Boy oh boy, are they delicious! My mom and I dipped them in marinara sauce the first evening, as Joy had recommended. Such a fantastic alternative to fried mozzarella cheese sticks. Placing the leftovers in the refrigerator, the next day I reheated a single serving in the oven - broiling them for about 1-2min on high; just enough to warm them. I then created an salad with baby mixed greens, pan seared salmon, veggie quinoa and the eggplant parmesan fries - dressing it with the Bolthouse Greek Yogurt Creamy Caesar Dressing (only 45 calories and 2.5g fat per 2Tbsp). Wonderful!
