Lighter Eggplant Parmesan

serves 4
prep time: 20 minutes
total time: 45 minutes

WHY IT’S LIGHT This Italian restaurant standby turns virtuous with baked (instead of fried) eggplant and a healthier béchamel made from skim milk, which is then combined with some marinara sauce. Using less cheese also helps; here, the two cheeses are sprinkled only on top, rather than in each layer.
 
1 large Italian eggplant (2 pounds), sliced ½ inch thick crosswise
1 tablespoon olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 cup skim milk
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup homemade or store-bought marinara sauce
½ cup grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
 
1. Preheat oven to 450°F, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Arrange eggplant in a single layer on two rimmed baking sheets. Brush eggplant on both sides with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Bake until golden brown and very tender, 20 to 25 minutes, turning slices and rotating sheets from top to bottom and front to back half-way through.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together ¼ cup milk, the flour, and garlic. Gradually whisk in remaining ¾ cup milk and ½ cup marinara sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

3. Spread ¼ cup marinara sauce in the bottom of a shallow 2-quart baking dish. Alternate layers of baked eggplant with milk sauce. Dollop with remaining ¼ cup marinara sauce. Top evenly with mozzarella and Parmesan. Bake on upper rack until cheese is browned and sauce is bubbling, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

This Cookbook is just what we have come to expect of Martha's New line of Books. Filled with Pictures that make my mouth water, this book is PACKED with easy to prepare recipes that will please a variety of pallets. There is a Picture for every recipe and a little Hint, Fact or Substitution as well. Some pages are divided into four parts each showing a different way to prepare a recipe, for example, there is Slaw prepared four different ways. One thing that delighted me as a baker was to see so many different desserts, each presented in a way that "diet" need not even be mentioned. I see SEVERAL recipes that could be doubled and taken to Church Dinners, as well as Recipes that you could serve at a Dinner Party and no one would ever know they were light. Another plus to this book is it's division by Seasons. What a smart thing to do with a light cookbook, seeing how so much of it is fresh ingredients that you will be assured are in season since it is divide as such. If you are already a subscriber to EVERYDAY FOOD you will recognize some of the recipes but don't let that stop you, because this book is a Treasure Trove of Beautiful, Light Cooking.

I cannot say enough good things about this cookbook. It is exactly what I've been wanting: fast, nutritious recipes that are not meat-heavy and include a wide variety of vegetables. It has bright pictures, simple instructions, short ingredient lists, and good clear information. There are more vegetarian recipes than in the previous books in this series, more fish recipes, and in general a greater emphasis on vegetables. If you are looking to improve your eating by going leaner, or edging toward meatlessness without going all the way--or, like me, cooking for a mixed household of meat eaters and vegetarians--this is a great book. Everything I've made from it is delicious, too.

I am surprised to find a cookbook that I would actually make about 98% of the recipes in it! I made the chicken enchiladas tonight and they were so good. They had a kick to them so you didn't know it was a light recipe! I would definitely recommend this cookbook.

I've made a number of the dishes in this book and have marked many more I want to try. I try to eat healthy and this book has a nice wide variety of dishes I've never seen in other books. I did the bok choy recipe and loved it. Then I tried the shredded brussels sprouts which were also terrific. I also made a few of the chicken dishes and the soy glazed tofu with carrots. I've loved them all. My only problem with the book is the way it's organized. It's done by seasons rather than by categories such as: vegetables, poultry, etc. Since I live in Florida, there really isn't much "winter" and finding recipes seems a bit trickier this way. I ended up just going through the whole book and putting small sticky notes on pages with recipes I wanted to try. I would also say that I have no children living at home anymore but I don't think a lot of the recipes are necessarily child-friendly unless the kids are used to really healthy foods. I hope to try some of them on my grandchildren and maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. But for me, this book is a real winner.

I've made a handful of these recipes in the two weeks since receiving it and I've loved each recipe that I've tried. The lighter chili, with chocolate, was delish!
Simple, uncomplicated meals! Easy to shop for and easy to eat! Bon appetit!

Format: Paperback
Everyday Food is one of my favorite series of books and magazines to gift to friends and family that are new to cooking or have little time for cooking. The meals are beautifully photographed and inspire one to try the recipe. Also the promise of this series is that these meals are simple and easy enough to be prepared everyday, which they are.

This latest compilation (Dec 2011) contains previously published recipes and photographs from Everyday Food, and as such are proven recipes of which many have become reader favorites. By focusing on "Light" recipes (from the Food Everyday series) in this volume, Martha Stewart makes it easier and faster to find the appropriate recipe and to eat healthier.

Highly recommended.

I didn't think I was a huge Martha fan, but this is a great cookbook. As you've probably gathered, all the recipes are for meals under 500 calories. They are also all pretty quick to prepare with easy to find ingredients, so it's accessible cooking. There are healthier recipes for all sorts of classics - like chicken parmesan and lasagne, for example. And there are lots of great ideas for salads, Asian influenced soups, and even basic side dishes.

I decided I needed to start eating healthier, but being a full time working mom of an infant, I don't have a lot of time to plan or cook meals. This book gives me some great ideas to inspire me, and makes it a lot easier to cook things I know I'll like, quickly, without having to over-think it.

As with most of Martha Stewart's recent cookbooks, this is a hit. Her team consistently nails every aspect that makes a cookbook usable: great pictures, helpful tips or hints, clear instructions, and nutrition information. And, of course, recipes that taste delicious.

Although every recipe in "Everyday Food: Light" is low in calories, they don't taste like bland diet food. Each recipe offers excellent, well-balanced flavor without packing in fat or calories. From delicious vegetable side dishes to hearty (and heart-healthy) chili, this cookbook delivers.

This is not meant to be a vegetarian cookbook (although Martha's recent Meatless: More Than 200 of the Very Best Vegetarian Recipes is also wonderful), but many of the recipes can be adapted to fit a range of dietary preferences. Overall, it's a perfect addition to any kitchen.
