One of the foods that's not part of the Slow Carb Diet is cheese (or any dairy, for that matter).
I can live without milk and yogurt pretty easily, but boy do I miss cheese, especially on things like scrambled eggs.
I discovered in the spring there's a replacement for cheese.
It's eggplant. Eggplant sauteed in oil, to be specific.
- Skin the eggplant and slice in flat rounds. I usually buy the long "Indian" ones, but regular eggplant will do also. If you're using a regular one, you might need to cut it in quarters as well.
- Saute over medium-high/high heat in grapeseed oil 'til slightly browned on either side.
- Enjoy the oily goodness mixed with a variety of things that would taste good with cheese, including cauliflower or eggs.
