Air fryer Eggplant Parmigiana recipe. Eggplant Parmigiana is a classic dish that usually requires frying, baking, and layered cooking. This healthy air fryer version cooks all in one pan for fast and easy weeknight dinners.

After searching for an easy, healthy, and fast eggplant parmigiana recipe, I found this recipe to be the perfect fit. Instead of frying the eggplant slices in a pan, this recipe cuts down on oil by cooking them in an air fryer. The dish is then layered with pasta sauce and cheese for maximum flavor.

What are the benefits of using an air fryer?

Air fryers are becoming more and more popular in our kitchens. They are a healthier alternative to deep-frying while still providing the same taste. The air fryer cooks food by circulating hot air around it. This cooking process is also known as convection cooking, which is similar to the way an oven works.

The benefits of using an air fryer are:

– It is healthier than deep frying because it does not require any oil or butter

– It cooks food faster than other cooking methods

– It has a lower cost of operation than other heating appliances.

The eggplant Parmigiana recipe is not the healthiest. It has a lot of calories and fats. But it can be considered healthy if you consume it in moderation, and you eat healthy the rest of the day.

What is a typical eggplant Parmigiana recipe?

Eggplant Parmigiana is a popular Italian dish that consists of a fried eggplant topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese.

The ingredients of the dish can vary from region to region, but the most common ones are eggplant, tomato sauce, oil, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Which vegetables can I cook in an air fryer?

Ingredients

  • 1 medium eggplant, sliced
  • 2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan, plus more for topping
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dired parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup (250 ml) tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mozarella cheese

Method

Step 1

In a medium mixing bowl, combine Italian breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, parsley, and seasoning. Mix well to combine.

Step 2

Preheat your air fryer to 390 F (195 C) for 5 minutes.

Step 3

In another mixing bowl, combine beaten eggs, salt, and black pepper. Whisk well.

Step 4

Dredge each eggplant slice in the egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture. Transfer breaded eggplants onto a baking sheet.

Step 5

Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Place eggplants in a single layer in the air fryer basket, spraying each with cooking spray.

Step 6

Fry at 390 F (195 c) for 8 minutes, flipping and spraying halfway through. Once eggplants are done and crispy, top each with tomato sauce, then with shredded Mozzarella. Fry for a further 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
