Eggplant “Toast”

I had some eggplant leftover from the Skinny eggplant lasagne so I placed it on foil lined tray sprayed with cooking spray. then layer the eggplant strips flat. Topped with a sprinkle of each smoked sweet paprika, garlic powder, parsley flakes and grated lactose free cheese (Liddle’s). I am not normally a fan of eggplant but this was delicious and I will be making it again. It makes a great substitute for a healthy version of garlic bread without the carbs

Chicken & Sundried Tomato Casserole

I came across this combination a few years back and decided to do it as I had ingredients to use up. Hubby loved it. I just did 2 chicken breast fillets into cubes, 1 pouch of sundried tomatoes with oil, 4 mushrooms sliced, and 1 handful of cheese on top. Place all ingredients after cutting into oven proof dish and bake 180*C for 25 minutes. Place 1 large beet cut into 6 and 2 purple carrots cut lengthwise into 3 then 1Tb balsamic Vinegar into 2nd dish and place in oven at same time to cook as chicken.

I have found a great gluten-free brand which had great baked items that never fail. I made red velvet cupcakes last time. This time brownies.  Taste better than normal ones and would never know they are gluten free. Simply follow the directions on the back of the box.
