Don’t be deterred by this cray vegetarian spin on “pizza.” We swear it’s so good you won’t even miss meat for this meal.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 large eggplant, sliced hamburger style
  • Shredded mozzarella or Mexican blend (as much as you want – it’s a free country)
  • 1 box of mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 bag of baby spinach
  • Marinara or pizza sauce (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Slice eggplant into 1/4 inch thick slices.
  3. Brush eggplant with light layer of olive oil.
  4. Place eggplant slices in oven for 15-20 minutes (don’t let it get too soft!)
  5. While eggplant is in the oven, sautée mushrooms with 1 tbsp. of olive oil and salt and pepper for about 5 mins. Set aside. Sautée spinach with 1 tbsp. of olive oil and salt and pepper for 1 to 2 mins or until wilted. Set aside.
  6. Spread a little bit of marinara or pizza sauce on each slice OR a little olive oil. Top with cheese and sautéed spinach and mushrooms.eggplant-pizza-uncooked
  7. Place pan back in the oven until cheese has melted (about 3-5 minutes)
  8. Enjoy!

This is one of our more “out-there” recipes, but trust us on this one – it’s delicious. Feel free to add any other healthy toppings of your choice! We love sautéed mushrooms and spinach, AND they’re healthy AF so it’s a win/win for all of us.

Eat up!
