Eggplant Parma

Eggplant is my favorite food!
It is just so yummy! But only went cooked properly! I can understand why people don't like eggplant when they eat a purple, rubbery, squeeky chunk of something.

Eggplant Parmesan is usually fried, then baked.

Instead, I bake mine twice.
I use a ground flax/hot water mixture to bread raw eggplant in seasoned Panko breadcrumbs and nutritional yeast. Then I bake or broil the breaded eggplant slices on both sides.

Finally stack in this order: eggplant, un-cheese & then sauce (Using the mock cheese as a barrier between the eggplant and the sauce helps keep the eggplant crispy!)
