This Ramadan, my family and I have been enjoying a low carb and healthier Iftar. I compiled my weekly menus and prepared much of my Iftar items before Ramadan. This helps make daily food decisions less stressful and tiring. With the days being short this time of the year in South Africa, there isn’t much time for tedious and complicated cooking. I prefer to keep my food simple, yet flavourful, and I aim to avoid wastage and extravagance.
About today’s recipe, these crunchy aubergine bites are a Ramadan favourite. After making them for Iftar last year and the family enjoying them so much, this appetizer definitely made the list for 2016. Think crunchy breadcrumb exterior with a soft eggplant interior, topped with a spicy sauce and meat of your choice. The only downside to these delicious pizzas is the task of crumbing and baking before Iftar. These need to be eaten fresh and crispy.
Once baked, these low carb pizzas can be topped with anything you like : veg, chicken, or beef.
