vegan mofo: grandma's eggplant parmesan

my lovely italian grandma surprised me with this dish of something wonderful earlier this fall.

status: foodgasmic!

why i'm including it: i visited my grandma for her birthday earlier this year...  she's an amazing woman who has inspired me more than she knows.  and she's made some of the best italian food  i've ever tasted (and still trying to emulate).  she taught me about black pepper on pizza!   anyways, she embraced my veganism and made this eggplant parm for us to share, complete with vegan mozzarella.

would i make it again:  if only i could do her cooking justice.


ps - happy thanksgiving!

So, your grandma made vegan eggplant parm on her birthday? That's incredible! Did she like it, too? It looks delicious. I love eggplant parm, and I think you should try out her recipe. Even 85% as good as grandma's is sure to be amazing.
