Breaded Eggplant “Parmesan”

Slowly baking these breaded eggplant cutlets brings out the best flavor, but they can also be pan fried in a bit of oil.

Serves: 4


  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 3⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2⁄3 cup soy milk
  • Egg replacer for 2 eggs
  • 1 1⁄2 cups bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1⁄4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 1⁄2 cups marinara sauce


  • Slice eggplant into 3⁄4-inch-thick slices and sprinkle with salt. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Gently pat dry to remove extra moisture.
  • In a shallow bowl or pie tin, combine flour and garlic powder. In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy milk and egg replacer. In a third bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, and nutritional yeast.
  • Coat each eggplant slice with flour, then carefully dip in the soy milk mixture, then coat with the bread crumb mixture and place in a lightly greased casserole dish.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, then top with marinara sauce, and return to oven until sauce is hot, about 5 minutes.
