Ingredients:

  • 1 Eggplant, Sliced and Baked (Baking is optional)
  • 1/2 pound Organic Grass-fed Beef
  • 1 cup tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp. Basil, or 1/2 tsp. dried Basil
  • 2 cups Level 1 Marinara
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Slice eggplant. Bake on 375 for 10 minutes (optional) This helps reduce water in the eggplant, making it less “soupy”.
  • Simmer beef with spices until cooked through, about 10 mintues
  • Layer eggplant, marinara or tomato sauce.
  • If using a crockpot, cook on low for 4 hours. If using the oven, bake for about 1 hour or until the kithchen becomes aromatic- this is an indication the flavors have melted together!

Notes from Chef Kimberly
As we all activate a healthy lifestyle, it’s so important to enjoy our food! Duh. But honestly! When eating healthy delcious foods becomes more enjoyable than eating stuff that weighs us down, THAT is when the magic happens and it becomes our lifestyle. I adore teaching our Betr family that they have their comfort foods, only they are so much betr because they leave us feeling light and energized, ready to be fully present with our family and friends.
