Step 1: Gather Ingredients

Recipe for 2-3 people:

  • 2 large eggplants
  • 2 vegan sausages
  • 1 medium paprika
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • pickled garlic (to taste)
  • 1 pck tomato sauce (or homemade tomato sauce)
  • 1/2 pack vegan cheese (I use Cheezly Mozarella-Style or Herbs)
  • vegan breadcrumbs

also: italian herbs, pepper, olive oil, salt

You can also try other fillings like fried mushrooms, smoked tofu or beans.

Step 2: Slice & Fry

  • preheat your oven to 180°C (350F)
  • cut up the eggplants into 1 cm slices
  • salt on both sides and let sit for 10 min (the salt pulls out the water and makes the eggplant softer and less bitter)
  • fry the eggplant slices on both sides with a little bit of olive oil. Apply with a brush if you want the fat content low. Fry on medium heal until the slices get soft and bendy. Set aside and let cool a little.

Step 3: Prep the Filling

  • cut up the saussages into pieces about the widht of the eggplant slices
  • cut the paprika and onions into fine stripes
  • cut how much garlic you want into slices

Step 4: Roll 'em Up

  • place saussage, peperoni, onion and garlic on one end of the eggplant slice. Add a dash of black pepper and herbs to taste
  • roll up the eggplant slice tightly around the filling and place into a casserole dish with the opening facing downwards. You can secure the rolls with a toothpick, just remember them when eating later!
  • pack your eggplant-rolls tightly in the casserole dish

Step 5: Gratin That Stuff!

  • cover the eggplant-rolls in tomato sauce
  • put sliced vegan cheese on top and sprinkle the breadcrumbs on (gives it a nice crust)
  • (up until now the dish can be prepared beforehand and temporarily stored in the fridge.)
  • bake 40min at 180°C (350F)

Serve hot with a side of herb polenta (italian/french cornmeal porridge) or wild rice.
