Eggplant No-Parmesan

Ingredients:

  • 1 Medium Eggplant
  • 1/2 Cup Tomato Sauce (Or Make your own with this Recipe)
  • Vegan cheese alternative to taste (Sheese is a great one! Or Nutritional yeast)
  • Sliced pitted olives (optional)
  • Fresh basil (optional)
  • Italian herb mix (oregano, basil, rosemary, thyme, black pepper, etc… optional)

 
Preparation:
This is a vegan/vegetarian, dairy free, egg free and wheat/gluten free take on the Italian classic Eggplant Parmesan.

Here’s what you do:
Rinse and trim stem from Eggplant. Slice in circular wedges of about 1cm width. Place on a tray or grill pan on top of foil and layer with sauce and alternative cheese. Add olive or fresh basil for a pizza like twist! Grill or bake (at 375 degress Fahrenheit approximately) until eggplant becomes soft and translucent. Sprinkle with herbs and black pepper.

Serve with a nice salad like this one!
