Vegetables in a kitchen

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggplants
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup vegan parmesan cheese, grated
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Slice the eggplants into 1/4-inch thick rounds, and brush with olive oil on both sides. Arrange on a baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until tender. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano, basil, paprika, cinnamon, cloves, and vegetable broth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
  • In a separate saucepan, heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Whisk in 2 tbsp flour until smooth. Gradually stir in 2 cups of almond milk, whisking constantly. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and stir in 1/2 cup of vegan parmesan cheese.
  • Now it’s time to layer! In a large casserole dish, layer the baked eggplant slices followed by a layer of tomato sauce. Repeat until all the eggplant and sauce are used up. Pour the béchamel sauce evenly over the top.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped parsley if desired.
