If you are a garlic bread addict but you don’t want to explode your carbs intake, this low-carb cheesy pull-apart garlic bread recipe is for you. The surprising thing about this recipe is the whole eggplant which works as a bread substitute.
These eggplants are generously coated with garlic and herbs olive oil then stuffed with grated mozzarella cheese. The result is absolutely surprising. Each bite is tender, cheesy with a lovely garlic taste. You won’t believe it’s made with eggplant!
It’s been a while since I’ve been craving for pull-apart garlic bread. It’s everywhere on the Internet and it makes me soooo hungry.
But there’s no way I eat so much bread! So today I found a super deal on eggplant at my local food market – 2 eggplants for $5! I looked at these big and beautiful eggplants and suddenly I thought ‘this will be my low-carb garlic bread base for tonight!’.
I wasn’t too sure how it would hold together as eggplants can soften very fast when baked in the oven. But lucky me, the result was exactly what I was hoping it would be.

Big bites of baked eggplants with lots of cheese strings. I actually can’t believe it wasn’t bread. It was so soft and it melts in my mouth as a buttery garlic bread should do.
But well, this recipe isn’t the healthiest recipe ever as it does contain a large amount of grated mozzarella. But at least my healthy move was to use a vegetable instead of bread and to make an olive oil garlic & coriander marinade instead of butter.
It was really amazing. Below I listed some step by step pictures of this recipe to guide you through this process. It’s a bit messy to prepare, as you will have a lot of marinade and cheese all over the benchtop but it’s worth it!
Oh, and yes, my little toddler loves it too, and trust me she is not the kind of little lady who loves eggplant! So another mum-trick to make eggplant her fav’!
Last thing! If you want to make a similar recipe with no-dairy and low calorie, just don’t add cheese and instead stuff the eggplant with lots of minced fresh herbs mixed in tomato paste.
Follow the same baking instructions, wrap the eggplant into a large piece of foil and close very well to not let the moisture out. It will be delicious too!
