It’s still cold outside and my body has been craving carbs! I know the salad days are ahead so why not enjoy more starch while it’s still sweater and sweats weather?
This is a quick and easy-to-make dinner; you can opt to use other veggies instead of the zucchini and summer squash. I would, however, recommend keeping the tomatoes in the dish because it gives it a bit more punch.
You can easily double this recipe, but I would recommend using only 1 cup of vegan sour cream.
One of my favorite dishes is eggplant parmesan. It is, however, tedious and takes a good amount of time to prepare. Therefore, it is a dish that generally only make for special occasions.
This recipe has a lot of delicious summer flavors and comes together in a fraction of the time it takes to make eggplant parmesan. It is great served by itself, with hard-crusted bread, or pasta.
1: It is important to remove extra moisture and eliminate any bitterness from the eggplant. To accomplish this, keep the skin on the cleaned and dried eggplant, slice it into 1/2″ slices, and place them on paper towels. Sprinkle each round with salt and cover with another layer of paper towels. Let the rounds sit for at least 15 minutes, or up to 30 minutes. Gently pat dry, keeping some of the salt on the eggplant. Then, proceed to slice each of the rounds into quarters.
2. Eggplants, zucchini, and tomatoes vary in size. If you have too many veggies to fit into a 9×13″ casserole, put the remainder into a second smaller casserole.
