Eggplant Parm Bites

 

Look at these little babes! Mini eggplants are the cutest.  You can cut these in half and roast them with some olive oil, salt and pepper and they make a perfect side dish. The recipe that I am sharing with you guys today are eggplant parm bites.  These make fun appetizers but can honestly be eaten as meal.  I added chickpeas for an extra boost of protein and fiber – but any white bean can work! If you are vegan, skip the cheese and you can blend white beans and nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor. It works just as well- I just LOVE cheese.  Check out the recipe below! Enjoy.
