Oven dish with eggplant and zucchini in a tomato sauce with minced meat (Kelly)

The weather is rather “such and such” for the moment.  And with the weather being like that I tend to get an urge for nice warm en filling meals. An excellent way to prepare such a meal is by making an oven dish.

An oven dish is easy and fast to prepare. I’m going for a southern dish this time. Then it feels a bit like summer! And because I am on a carb free diet I leave the potatoes behind.

Like the zucchini, I find the eggplant a very tasty and grateful fruit. You will undoubtedly come across this in my recipes many times.

In addition, eggplant is also very useful as a meat substitute and super healthy!

INGREDIENTS: (3 persons):

  • 2 eggplants
  • 2 zucchinis
  • 1 union
  • 2 Cans of tomato sauce
  • 2  balls of mozzarella
  • 250gr chicken minced meat
  • peper
  • salt
  • olive oil


  • Cut the eggplants and courgettes into slices.
  • Cut the onion into cubes and bake it, add the meat and let it stew.
  • Add the tomato sauce and season with pepper and salt.
  • Take an oven dish and put a little bit of tomato sauce on the bottom.
  • Add the eggplants first, add some tomato sauce. Then on that comes a layer of zucchini. This way you will continue to work until all is used up.
  • Cut the mozzarella into slices and place them on top.
  • Place the dish in a preheated oven ( 180 ° C) for 30 minutes.
  • Then gratinate for another 5 minutes so that the mozzarella is beautiful and brown.

Bon appetit!


  • When the weather is warm  it’s nice to eat cold too!
  • If you want to lose weight, you should eat minced meat not more than 1x a week.
