Healthy Oven Air Fried Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

Oven air frying is one of my favorite methods of preparing food.  Enjoy a healthy spin on the traditional eggplant parmesan recipe I share in today’s post.

Eggplant Parmesan Recipe

The biggest problem I have with owning an oven air fryer is not eating too much.  The oven air fryer cooks the food as if it were in the deep fryer only with no added fat/calories.  If you don’t have a Power Oven Airfryer use my review link that will take you to Amazon below to get one!  You can also do this same method in your oven but don’t expect it to be crunchy like in the Power Oven Airfryer.

Inspired by my garden to create this recipe!

In the Garden

Below are a few of my favorite ingredients from the garden to use in this recipe.  In today’s feature, I have new basil I am trailing in my garden this summer by Proven Winner.  It is a super fragrant grower and is performing very nice in my super dry summer garden.

About The Basil

the first Italian sweet basil that is resistant to downy mildew, a disease that often plagues basil. And since it’s sterile, this large, vigorous plant produces a higher yield of usable, deliciously aromatic leaves. – Proven Winners 

I highly recommend patio/ container eggplant varieites for this recipe.

The great thing about using a patio or container garden eggplant variety is you will not have to soak the slices in salt water to get them to tenderize.  The new varieties are perfect as is! A few patio eggplant varieties I recommend are FairyTale, Rosa Bianca, and Shooting Start.
