Easy Slow Cooker Eggplant Lasagna
A while ago, I made a delicious, savory and completely grain and gluten free lasagne by using eggplant noodles.
I went to make it again recently- when I realized I needed to be somewhere before we normally eat dinner and I didn’t have time to make anything right before we’d be sitting down to eat.
I’ve been trying to bump up our vegetable intake a lot lately, and still wanted to serve something delicious that fit into our healthier eating- but I didn’t have more than 10 minutes to toss it in a crockpot.
Luckily, this Slow Cooker Eggplant Lasagna is the fastest, easiest, and cheesiest dish ever- you won’t realize there are no classic noodles, and the eggplant gives the dish a rich, meaty flavor while still being vegetarian.
It’s a winner that your whole family will love!
I absolutely love the meaty flavor eggplant gives this lasagne and how rich the sauce tastes.
And this is the EASIEST lasagna ever, because you don’t have to boil noodles- just assemble and go! Sure, there are the no-boil lasagna noodles you can buy in stores, but they never work right for me.
These eggplant “noodles” come out delicious every time!
How To Make Eggplant Noodles
To get my noodles perfect, I used an OXO mandoline.
I always had troubles with mandolines until I found a heavy duty oxo model when buying gifts with wedding cards years ago.
I’d had mine over 5 years and never had any issues- and it is still perfectly sharp and efficient!
With a sharp mandoline and a steady hand, use these tips to make thin sliced eggplant noodles:
-Set your mandoline for the thinnest setting possible.
-Cut the ends off of the eggplant – the mandoline will slice a lot more efficiently when it can push faster through the eggplant – and cutting off the ends makes this much easier.
-Rotate the eggplant as you slice for best hand placement.
-Slice noodles right before cooking to prevent browning.
-Skin can be left on eggplant, and can be helpful to grip eggplant, but trim ends off.
