but it had to be done.
I am not a cook, it's just not something I enjoy.
I do it out of necessity & most of the time
I make things that don't involve a lot of
ingredients, a lot of time or any cooking at all.
I usually eat fresh dishes with organic
vegetables & fruit, cheese & the addition of
some sort of bread, tortilla, wrap, etc.
But...last night was different.
I had picked an eggplant from the garden &
was determined to make something great from it.
The result was a complete sucess
& I was so proud of myself
I had to take a picture of it
(of course after I tasted a couple bites)!
It was my version of eggplant parmesan
because I didn'thave a lot of the required ingredients
I just went with the flow.
Below is the list of what I used
for my own future reference:
Sauce-1 1/2 cans of tomatoes, capers, garlic, olives,
basil from the garden, olive oil, salt & pepper
Eggplant-sliced, then a wash of flour, eggs, s&p,
covered in homemade bread crumbs, oregano
& put in the frying pan
Cheese mixture-havarti, feta, buffalo mozzarella,
parmesan, eggs, s&p,yellow onions, more basil & garlic
Then to the baking pan I added a layer of sauce,
lasagna noodles to cover, then the eggplant,
cheese mixture & repeated,
added a parmesan topping & baked for 45 min. @ 350.
It was so good I'm eating it for lunch too. Yum!
Has anyone else cooked a great vegetarian meal lately?
