    Very tasty! I must have had a pretty large eggplant though because I needed two eggs and double the dry mixture to cook it all. I served it with cooked onion, garlic, and fire roasted tomatoes on top.

    I don’t have much almond meal left….but… I DO have flaxseed meal and am going to mix whatever almond meal I have with some flaxseed meal. I shall leave another comment about how it tasted. Stay tuned…

    I agree- DELICIOUS- but you need to triple the almond meal or you won’t have nearly enough for a regular size eggplant.

    Why Almond Meal ? I have never seen this in any store .

      Gabriella, you could use almond meal or almond flour. Do you have a Trader Joe’s nearby? They sell almond meal. Of course you can also make your own. :)
