I love pizza! But I don’t love the crazy amount of calories in it (approx 300 calories per slice) and I don’t find it super filling either. Solution: Eggplant pizza to the rescue!😍
1 eggplant, cut into 1 inch rounds
Any toppings of your choice
Assemble pizza using the eggplants as the “crust”
Top with your favourite toppings
Bake at 350 for 25 mins (or until soft but not super mushy 😅)
And there you have it! Approximately 60 calories per slice…not bad! This is a nutrient rich alternative to pizza that will leave you feeling full and satisfied. Plus you can have multiple slices and not worry about it taking up half of your daily total calorie intake…woohoo!
Happy to help!

🌙seasoning: I used everything but the bagel seasoning- if you don’t have this stick to salt and pepper
🌙pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
🌙crack the eggs in a mixing bowl and combine all of the ingredients
🌙grease mini muffin tin
🌙pour mixture into tin

Now girl, go ahead and snooze for an extra few minutes in the morning – breakfast will be waiting for you to grab n go. Enjoy!
*the best part about these are that they are a great way to sneak veggies into a toddlers diet-my son doesn’t like broccoli but just ate two and asked for more🙌🏻*

I’ve been keeping a little secret….we LOVE garlic bread in this house, specifically Furlani Garlic Toast! The versatility and subtle garlic flavour of this toast is what I love most about it. Furlani products are vegetarian, so I can feed my family in confidence 🙂
A little backstory for you all: One day I was at home with the kids and I hadn’t gotten a chance to pick up the traditional roti we usually pair with our homemade curries (Hi, my name is Tabassum and I cannot for the life of me make a round soft roti so I gave up for now lol) and my kids were HUNGRY. So I was picking my brain on what vehicle to use with the curry to feed the kids. Then the lightbulb moment happened: I had Furlani Garlic Toast! I quickly popped a few pieces into my oven and within 5 minutes dinner was ready! The kids gobbled up the curry and garlic toast and were really happy doing so may I add!
That night I put the kids to bed and taste tested this out myself…and guys, we have a winner!! The thickness of the bread is perfect to sop up delectable curries and the subtle garlic bread added another element of flavor to overall dish!
And so, ladies and gentleman, I present to you: Fusion Vegetable Curry with a side of Furlani Garlic Toast!
Vegetable Curry Recipe:
2 tbsp vegetable oil
4 cups mixed vegetables (I used frozen)
1 medium potato
1 medium onion, diced
1 tomato, chopped
3 garlic cloves, mined
1 tbsp freshly grated ginger 2 tsp garam masala
1⁄2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground coriander
1⁄2 tsp black pepper
1⁄2 tsp red chilli powder
1⁄2 tsp salt (or to taste)
2 cups vegetable broth
1⁄4 cup cilantro (garnish)
● Add the the vegetable oil to a large pot and place over medium heat
● Sautee the onions for 5 minutes or until golden brown
● Add in the tomatoes, garlic and ginger and cook down until soft or the onion and tomato mixture gets to a paste consistency, stirring periodically
● Add in the spices: salt, garam masala, turmeric, ground coriander, black pepper and chili powder
● Saute for one minute
● Add in the vegetable broth along with the mixed vegetables and the potato
● Stir to incorporate and cook covered or 10 minutes, stirring periodically
● Uncover and mix gently, 5 minutes
● If there is a lot of liquid left, continue to boil on medium head until reduced (curry should
be thick but if you like it one the thinner side, reduce boil time)
● Once the potatoes have softened completely, the curry is complete!
I hope you will try out this vegetable curry recipe with a side of Furlani Garlic Toast! You won’t be disappointed.
