Pity the #Vegetarian — NOT!

This is what we had for supper the other night:eggplantParmGreen beans from the farmers market, acini di pepe (Italian for couscous, I do believe) with slathers of vegan margarine, and eggplant Parmesan.

Eggplant Parmesan

  • eggplant
  • Italian-flavored breadcrumbs
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • olive oil
  • spaghetti sauce

Peel and slice the eggplant. Mix breadcrumbs and some of the cheese. Coat the eggplant slices with this mixture. Heat some olive oil in a skillet and brown the eggplant on both sides.

Coat a casserole dish with olive oil and put some spaghetti sauce in the bottom. I like Chunky Garden Style sauce.

Drain the cooked eggplant on paper toweling (kitchen roll, for my British friends).

Put the eggplant slices into the casserole dish, overlapping them. Top them with spaghetti sauce and as much cheese as you can afford.

Bake for about 45-60 minutes at 350 F until the cheese is melted and (if you like it that way) browned.

Oh. Migahd. So. Good.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character can’t afford one ingredient for an important dish.

    With our mini-harvest in process (wife’s veggie garden) we are having more meatless meals. They are so good, I don’t really care.

    Have you ever laid out everything for your meal prep, even started the early ones off, and then you take the main ingred out of the fridge, and WHEW-OH!! It is no good, doesn’t pass the sniff test, has rotten spot hidden on the bottom, way past the eat-by date, ETC ETC ETC!!


    Your meal looks great BTW!
