3 tablespoons butter
4 cups chopped and peeled eggplant
¼ cup stevia
2 teaspoons apple pie spice
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
½ cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
HEAT A LARGE skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter. When the butter is hot, add the eggplant, sweetener, and ½ cup of water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Be sure to cook that eggplant down, and don’t leave it chewy and chunky. This is key to making it taste like apple pie.
Stir in the apple pie spice and xanthan gum. (If necessary, add an additional ¼ cup or more water.) Cook and stir until the mixture thickens slightly, 1 to 2 minutes.
