Just when you thought lasagna wasn’t keto, think again! Using the power of eggplant, cheese and a few other delicious ingredients, you can create a lasagna that replicates the original in taste and appearance. Read on for all the juicy tips.
This keto lasagna recipe is a great recipe to put together for the family, as it serves large portions easily without any extra effort.
A little warning, since this lasagna is made using eggplant, it doesn’t hold together like regular lasagna. It’s simply impossible to achieve a uniform piece without the starchiness of regular pasta to bind the layers together.
This eggplant lasagna would also make a perfect meal prep recipe. You could assemble the ingredients into individual portions and bake separately.
It’s also a great time to experiment with alternative cuts of meat or varieties that wouldn’t otherwise be thought of. I’ve made this lasagna with kangaroo meat, which is lean in fat and high in protein. You can decide on the meat depending on which way you want to push the macros.
Using kangaroo mince would make it higher in protein and a little lower in calories than using beef. A typical 80% lean ground beef lasagna would include slightly higher fat and calories in comparison.
I’ve used pre-sliced cheese in this recipe for convenience, but feel free to use grated cheese as a substitute, since it’s basically the same thing. Many easy lasagna recipes use cheese slices since you can get really even coverage without too much mess.
