We’re heading into prime summer garden season in Utah, and that usually means that zucchini recipes will be getting the spotlight on the blog. But another veggie that’s abundant during summer garden season is eggplant, and I’ve been a huge eggplant fan ever since I started growing it in my garden (back in 2007!)

For years I’ve been urging people to give eggplant a chance. I’m especially fond of grilled eggplant which is the way I first learned to cook it, but through the years I’ve also made roasted eggplant dishes and eggplant stir-fries that got gobbled up pretty quickly! And eggplant is a perfect ingredient for carb-conscious eating! It’s not only low in carbs, but also high in fiber, and loaded with nutrients.

And as you can see from this collection of The BEST Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Eggplant Recipes that I’ve gathered from great blogs around the web, these are endless ways to prepare eggplant. If you’re not an eggplant fan (yet!) I hope one of these low-carb and gluten-free eggplant recipes might tempt you to try some eggplant.

  1. It’s actually very good with lots of raw veggies: carrots, celery, cauliflower, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, etc. And while baba ghanouj is very similar to hummus, the chickpeas that make up the body of hummus are higher in carbs than the eggplant used for baba ghanouj. So a platter of veggies with a bowl of baba ghanouj makes a pretty good low-carb appetizer, I think.

  2. What about Baba Ghanouj? That’s the eggplant recipe that won over my family.

    • Yes, that’s a popular recipe using eggplant for sure. This is focused on low-carb recipes and that’s usually eaten with Pita Bread, so that’s probably why I didn’t come across a low-carb version of it. But I bet it would be good dipped with cauliflower!

  3. Welllll, I am guilty of not really "trying" eggplant. In the last year and 1/2 I have had to drastically change my (and my families) diet. I am gluten and dairy free, plus I have to avoid acidic foods. I tell people, be careful of what you pray for. 🙂 I think I may have to try a couple of these recipes as a co-worker brought me in some beautiful eggplants from her garden. I will let you know how it goes Kalyn! Thanks for sharing!

  4. So many ideas of delicious eggplant recipes. Thank you for sharing, Kalyn!

  5. How did you know I got an eggplant in my CSA this week?! Thanks for the great ideas. 🙂

  6. wow, its very yummy and delicious. so i like to make it today and eat eggplant rollup. thanks for sharing…

  7. Hello, hope my question gets to you. I made eggplant w/a tomato sauce,I salted the sliced pieces of ep before,and let sit for awhile,b4 frying in a skillet. The problem was the skin on the edges was so tough,that it became uneatable,although the whole dish was great. Q.Why/how to make the outer skin more soft? Big hugs,and thank you.

    • I think some eggplants have much tougher skin than others. If you're using small thin eggplants they rarely need to be peeled. For larger ones, I would peel the skin if you don't like that texture. You can kind of tell by poking your fingernail through the skin when it's going to be tough, if that makes sense. I think for fried eggplant where it's cooked quickly at high heat, the skin will usually not soften much. Hope that helps!

    • Thank you so much 'busy lady' for the reply..It does make sense.

  8. I’m gonna make this tomorrow it looks major! Thank youuuu!

  9. Thanks so much for including a couple of my favorite eggplant recipes, and for sharing so many other good ideas for eggplant.
