Cedarlane had generously sent me some products of theirs to try, including the Eggplant Parmesan.
Well, after heating up this dish in the microwave, the picture on the box didn’t really not depict what I had. The box shows 2 long slices of eggplant with cheese and veggies. What I got (I didn’t have my camera so I couldn’t take a picture of it! ) was about 5 or 6 circular pieces of eggplant all mooshed together with some cheese and scrambled veggies. But I’m not one to judge on looks, so I dug in.
The eggplant was very soft, and “buttery”tasting. There is also a LOT of eggplant, and I didn’t see any breadcrumbs like the ingredients say there are, but perhaps it was just mixed up with all the cheese and veggies. I really liked the “seeded” part of the eggplant-it has a little bit more of a bite and more flavor to it compared to the rest. There definitely is a strong tomato flavor here, probably from the sundried tomato sauce. There also is pa-lenty of cheese in this dish. It was gooey and stringy and it was how cheese is supposed to be 🙂 . I also liked the parmesan cheese flavor that came through with the veggies.
Overall, this dish wasn’t bad. I think it kind of tasted a little like frozen pizza, actually. I do, however, almost wish that it had less eggplant and they paired the eggplant parmesan with another side dish. It was also a bit too salty for me. It is, however, an excellent way to get some vegetables into your day. This meal is getting a 3 1/2 star for me, 4 star if you like eggplant parmesan.

I can’t even remember the last time I had eggplant parm – that is NOT okay! It’s one of my favorite italian dishes 🙂
Thanks for the comment! I LOVE eggplant so I will keep my eyes peeled for this.
This sounds amazing!
I’ve never seen this brand. Looks amazing.
Umm, yes. I’ll eat the whole box. And then maybe another.
