My dad is suppose to limit phos and pot this recipe seem to have a lot to me? Is this really recommended for dialysis pt? Dietitian comment: The amounts in this recipe are very reasonable considering the nutritional value of the dish. If you want to reduce the phosphorus further, substitute liquid egg substitute for the eggs.

Are the Renal and Renal Diabetic Food Choices, plus the Carbohydrate Choices the equivalencies to one serving of the recipe? Moderator response: Yes, those values are for one portion of the recipe.

Eggplant Casserole



I made this for my brother - he loves eggplant. I added sliced mushrooms, fresh sage and a small amount of grated Romano cheese to the breadcrumbs. It was very satisfying and I think I can kick it up a notch next time, I'm going to add onions, oregano or thyme. Thank you for taking the worry out of cooking for my brother. Everyone enjoyed the DaVita recipes over Christmas holiday this year and no mention of my brother's "special" diet!"
