  8. In a small bowl, whisk together the nutritional yeast, cornstarch, lemon juice, salt, and pepper to make a thick and creamy sauce.
  9. Add the sauce to the skillet and stir until it is well incorporated.
  10. Place one layer of baked eggplant slices at the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  11. Add a layer of the vegetable and bean sauce on top of the eggplant slices.
  12. Add another layer of eggplant slices and continue layering until all the ingredients are used up, ending with a layer of the vegetable sauce on top.
