Recipe Ingredients for Janice's Louisiana Style Eggplant

650 g eggplant
16 oz stewed tomatoes
5 g vegetable bouillon
2 g basil
120 g red bell pepper, chopped
135 g celery, chopped
105 g onion, chopped
1/2 t fresh cracked black pepper
10 g nutritional yeast
33 g shredded wheat
1 g canola oil

Recipe Directions for Janice's Louisiana Style Eggplant

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut eggplant in cubes (no need to peel) and boil for eight minutes. Drain into a colander.

  3. In a large skillet, saute bay leaves, red bell pepper, celery and onion until softened. Put the sauteed mix in a bowl. Wipe the skillet with a paper towel so it can be used for the next step.

  4. Melt the butter over medium heat in the wiped clean skillet, when bubbly, add the flour and stir well until incorporated. Add canned or fresh tomatoes and water or stock; stir to incorporate. Add the sauteed mix. Taste and adjust seasonings. Add roux if needed. I like to use Tony Chacheres Instant Roux. The roux also has some seasonings so taste the liquid after the roux incorporates. You may want to add some of your favorite Louisiana seasoning at this point too - it all depends on if you are a spice person or prefer to let the veggies shine.

  5. After the sauce thickens, stir in the eggplant. Pour into a Pam sprayed or non-stick casserole and sprinkle with cheese and bread crumbs.

  6. Bake for 1/2 hour at 350 degrees
