How do you keep eggplant from getting soggy?

 

Make sure you sprinkle some coarse salt on each side of your thin eggplant slices.

 

This will help keep your eggplant from getting soggy when layered in with the other ingredients.

 

Some have advised wiping the eggplant slices with a paper towel after setting them aside for 10-20 minutes to avoid any chance that your eggplant slices will get soggy.

 

Lastly, if you truly want to make sure your eggplant doesn’t get soggy, you can grill each side of your thinly sliced eggplant for about 2-3 minutes.

 

This will help you maintain a more rigid texture that you’d expect when you bite into a traditional lasagna recipe.

Now that you have some answers to some frequently asked questions and some more tips to make sure your keto eggplant lasagna comes out perfect, it’s time to scroll down and get started.
