Low Carb Eggplant Bake (Vegetarian)

The Herbeevore
This irresistible cheesy eggplant bake recipe is one of my favorite keto and low carb vegetarian meals. Packed  healthy vegetables: eggplant, spinach, and tomatoes, its great to make ahead or meal prep!  Great as a side dish or a vegetarian keto dinner. This delicious eggplant bake is made by layering roasted eggplant, tomato sauce, cheese, and spices. It's great to enjoy by itself, or serve alongside a hearty dinner.
