Serves 2


1 large eggplant, peeled and sliced into thin, flat long strips
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar mixed with 2 tablespoons water
1 red or green bell pepper, or 1/2 red pepper and 1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup chopped mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 teaspoon Dr. Fuhrman's MatoZest or other no-salt-added Italian seasoning, adjusted to taste
1 tablespoon Nutritarian Parmesan, optional (see note)


Marinate eggplant slices in the balsamic vinegar and water mixture for one hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Drain eggplant and place in a baking pan lined with parchment paper or lightly wiped with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, until flexible.

Meanwhile, heat 1/4 cup water in a sauté pan and water sauté peppers, onion, mushrooms and garlic over medium heat until tender. Add tomato sauce, chopped tomatoes and MatoZest and simmer for 10 minutes.

Spread a layer of the tomato sauce mixture down the middle of each baked eggplant slice and roll up. Place in the baking dish, cover with the remaining tomato sauce mixture and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Top with Nutritarian Parmesan if desired.

Note: To make Nutritarian Parmesan, place 1/4 cup nutritional yeast, 1/2 cup raw almonds, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder in a food processor and pulse until it reaches the texture of grated Parmesan. Store in a sealed container and refrigerate.

I made this with red pepper and I did not roll the eggplant. I layered it, and it was absolutely fabulous!!!

I later made it by rolling. I also made my own sauce by using the stuffing as the sauce base with crushed tomato and tomato sauce. It was sooooooooo good!!!! I will be making it again today and I plan to stuff them with the mixture plus spinach!!

I made this and thought it was great too. Tasty. Once you cook the eggplant it is not too hard to roll the filling into it.

I wonder if you could layer some portobella mushrooms on the eggplant. Im going to try tonight. I made it the standard way last night and it was fabulous!!

OH MY! I LOVED this one! I couldn't get big enough eggplants so layered in the pan - still - AWESOME! Only thing - I have to try not to make it so often that I burn out on it - L-O-V-E THIS! SO great to have as leftovers too.

We tried both layering and rolling...neither looked all that pretty, but it sure was delicious! Anxious to try again. We thought it works well as an appetizer or side dish.

Excellent recipe! I'm just starting ETL and found this a great comfort food. At the table, I lightly sprinkled some McCormick Salt Free Spicy Seasoning on top and it was just the right finishing touch.

I made this for our first ETL Easter dinner. My parents (non ETL) enjoyed it as well. I found the natural flavors to be delightful. I will certainly make it again. I like the spinach idea cybster. I think to lesson the acidity I will add some mushrooms next time. This recipe has a lot of room for versatility.

This was delicious! My eggplant wasn't long enough to roll so I layered it with homemade tomato sauce, the saute mix and fresh basil...yum!

It was good but not great for me. My vegetarian parents enjoyed it more than me. It seemed to be missing something but I can't figure out what it is....

I loved this one - the eggplant was the best part about the dish, by far! I agree, mrsevaro, something was missing but it wasn't that big of a deal - the dish was gone very shortly after it was complete and my tummy was full! Will definitely make this one again (with spinach, thank you cybster!) Want more eggplant now...

I didn't know eggplant could taste this good!...Used to grill it & didn't strike a fancy to it at all; it was always too oily...I did change one thing: put salsa instead of tomato sauce. The result was a dish with a bit of zing to it! Will be making this more often!

We really enjoyed this meal. My husband is not a fan of eggplant and he eat this up and asked for more. Easy to make and filling. A great meal to share with friends and non-ETL eaters. Would be great with added vegetables such as spinach, mushrooms and onions or whatever you usually put in your baked pasta/lasagna recipes.

We were pleasantly surprised at how good this was. I used a recipe for marinara from scratch in place of the tomato sauce since I'm trying to keep the salt low. I'm really anxious for the first farmer's market tomatoes to come out so I can use them in recipes like this and the Tomato Bisk. You can't get anything but those tasteless tomatoes in the grocery stores this time of year. We are starting our 8th week of ETL today and going strong.
