TipRocket & green bean salad
If you serve the Parmigiana with this salad, you can count the meal as having 3 of your 5-a-day. Lightly cook 150g fine green beans in a small pan of boiling water for 3-4 mins, then run under cold water. Toss the beans with a 70g pack of rocket and a handful of basil leaves. Drizzle with 1 tbsp rapeseed oil, a squeeze of lemon juice and a grinding of pepper, and gently toss together.How I made it healthier
I didn’t salt the aubergines. Instead of frying the aubergines, I reduced the fat by brushing the slices with a mixture of rapeseed oil (instead of olive oil) and lemon juice, and then baking them. To cut fat and salt further, I replaced some of the mozzarella with ricotta and reduced the amount of Parmesan.What if I...
Used all mozzarella instead of a mix of ricotta and mozzarella? The calories would increase by 28 kcals. Total fat would rise by 2.4g, while saturated fat would rise by 1.7g and salt by 0.2g per serving.
