Becuase it’s paleo, we made our eggplant torta without a crust. But don’t worry. With layers of eggplant and tomato sauce set with eggs, you truly won’t even care. Because it’s just that good.

Eggplant Torta - Real Plans

An omelette, a sandwich, a cake, and bread. Depending on which world cuisine you’re sampling, a torta is many things. And in Italy, it’s a sort of pie – usually savory. Because it’s paleo, we made our eggplant torta without a crust. But don’t worry.

With layers of eggplant and tomato sauce set with eggs, you won’t even miss the crust. Because it’s just that good.

If you want something a little meatier, add Slow Cooker Shredded Beef to your layers.
