HOW TO MAKE EGGPLANT PARMESAN:
- Slice eggplant into thin rounds slightly less than 1/2 inch thick, and sprinkle each side with himalayan sea salt.
- While waiting, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C) and line a baking sheet with foil and add nonstick spray. Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan for the pasta.
- Prepare your separate areas by placing almond milk (or soy milk) and cornstarch in one bowl; flour in another bowl; and bread crumbs and sea salt, oregano, thyme and and vegan parmesan (or nutritional yeast) in another bowl.
- Dip eggplant slices in flour, then almond milk mixture, then breadcrumbs. Arrange on the baking sheet and put in the oven to bake for a total of 20-30 minutes.
- While eggplant is browning in the oven, prepare the marinara sauce.
- Once done cooking, drain pasta and place aside.
- Serve and enjoy!
One major ingredient that most vegan cheese recipes calls for that is not necessarily well-known is nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast is a food additive made from a single-celled organism, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae ,which is grown on molasses and then harvested, washed and dried with heat to deactivate it.
It doesn’t grow like regular yeast so it has no leavening ability. It is completely vegan and can be found online, in natural health food stores and some grocery stores.
Vegan Parmesan can be found in many stores! Look for the brand Daiya.
