- Garden Eggplants
- Marinara Sauce from garden tomatoes
- Vegan Cheese (use regular cheese if you're Lacto Vegetarian)
- Sea Salt
- EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) or regular olive oil
First you need to plant eggplants. No. Just kidding! It's just that eggplants harvested from your own garden are just amazingly fresh and organic.
Okay... okay... here's the recipe:
Slice the eggplants crosswise about 1 1/2 inch thick. Put them in a big bowl and sprinkle some salt slightly on each side. Let them sit for about 30 minutes. They release some of that bitter moisture from the salt.
When time's up, pour the fluid out that came from them. You'll see that that liquid is kinda brown. Rinse the slices and drain on a towel or paper towels.
Arrange the slices on a baking sheet while you spritz each of them with olive oil. You can brush the oil on them if its easier for you.
Bake in a 400 degree oven turning once until they're soft. Keep an eye on them so they don't burn.
Next... the fun part:
Take a rectangular pan ( a lasagna pan will be perfect for it) and layer them with marinara sauce (home-made is best). Layer them alternating with sauce and cheese if you prefer. Pretend you're cooking lasagna. You should be a pro.
Bake until bubbly.
Note: The cheese used here was vegan cheese that resembles parmesano romano cheese for the layers and mozzarella cheese for the topping. But for starters, make your vegetarian diet recipes with cheese.
You know, you can start with being a lacto veggie. So you can go ahead with your cheese. You're at least a step forward to a healthy meal without the meat.
Absolutely divine. Nothing like eggplants you baked yourself from the garden that you planted yourself, with marinara sauce made from garden tomatoes.
You can absolutely use store bought eggplants. This vegetables is not on the top ten list of pesticide laden fruits and veggies. So go ahead and don't worry if they're not organic.
