INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium to large eggplant
  • 1 package (8 ounces) SWEET EARTH Enlightened Foods Ground Chipotle Style Seitan
  • 2 to 3 large tomatoes
  • 1 to 2 large garlic cloves
  • Fresh parsley
  • Fresh basil
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

MAKE IT

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Step 2
Rinse the eggplant and pat dry with paper towel. Cut the eggplant into thin slices.
Step 3
Brush each eggplant slice with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
Step 4
Cut tomatoes into thin rings. Finely chop the garlic, parsley and basil leaves.
Step 5
Place the eggplant on a parchment paper-lined baking pan. Stuff eggplant slices with seitan, tomato, garlic, parsley and basil. Drizzle with more oil.
Step 6
Bake for about one hour. If there is still liquid in the pan lower the oven temperature to 200° F and bake 15 minutes longer or until all liquid has evaporated. Length of baking depends on the size of the eggplant. Just another way to enjoy Earth’s bounty 🙂
